A new rural tourism project in Barouk with USAID funding


The Rene Moawwad Foundation (RMF) signed the day before yesterday a Memorandum of Understanding for the implementation of the “Promoting rural tourism in the Baruk – Freydiss region” project within the framework of the “Building Alliance for Local Advancement, Development, and Investment” (BALADI) programme which is being implemented by RMF with funding from USAID.
Former Minister Nayla Moawwad noted in her inaugural speech that the project will provide 25 new job opportunities for young people and will open to local farmers the possibilities to sell their produce, adding that this will, lead to the invigoration of tourism in the region.  Moawwad also added that this type of intervention is in line with RMF’s objectives, and concluded with acknowledging the work of the Shouf Cedar Reserve in protecting the environment and in facilitating the launch of this project.
