Intaliqi empowers marginalized women from Beirut to the Bekaa Valley, offering training, facilities and aid, helping them become more active and productive members of their communities.The organization was founded in 2013 by Zeina al-Zein and Lynn Tabbara. The pair said they shared a passion for helping women, and were already doing so on a personal level when they decided to found the NGO. The organization targets women who need help regardless of whether they are Lebanese, Syrian or Palestinian. Through its relief work and training initiatives, the organization is working to foster such cooperation to help empower women.The hot meals prepared by the women are distributed in the camps where Intaliqi works.The three women made the kitchen their own, and Zein seemed proud of what the NGO has accomplished, both in terms of helping of others and providing the women with an outlet for their skills. Zein stressed the importance of establishing such facilities within the camps, so women don't have to worry about transportation or leaving their children and families.Intaliqi remains focused on helping all vulnerable women, and the organization is planning new projects for Lebanese women in the future.
