For how long does Ahel coach a campaign?
The time to accompany each campaign differs based on the campaign objective, and the need of its leadership. However, our objective is to decrease and stop coaching the campaigns as they build their leadership and collective capacity. The longest campaign we have coached is 3 years and the shortest we have coached is 6 months.
Ahel coached and trained Tabek Nithamak Campaign (Implement Your Laws) in the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. The campaign demands that the PLO implements its bylaws and organize elections to choose the refugee camp committees. Two years ago, Ahel partnered with Habaq in AlHosson Camp in Jordan to train and build grassroots leadership organizing for the cleanliness and hygiene of the camp after UNRWA decreased the number of workers there due to loss of funding. Currently, Ahel is coaching a community campaign facilitated by Women Now in Lebanon where Syrian men and women refugees are organizing themselves against early marriage in their communities under the name Lissatna Sghar (We Are Still Young).
