Our Causes

Tyre Garden

Tyre Public Park is the only public park in the city of Tyre, and represents a place where the inhabitants of the city can come together to escape its noise and pollution. However, in recent decades it was allowed to become a wasteland, with a considerable amount of littering, and the occupation of parts of it.Read More

There is a long-term plan in place to rehabilitate Tyre Public Park in order to make it more accessible and attractive to the public. This, in turn, will promote mental and physical health, improve the environmental situation, foster social communication, create and nurture a sense of community and belonging, benefit economic growth and reduce the amount of illegal acts carried out there. Tyre is a world-renowned city, known for its beauty and history, and it is time to create a public park that reflects this and that the people of Tyre can use and can be proud of.  This will foster a sense of community amongst the inhabitants of Tyre, and aid in bridging the divides that exist with Lebanese society today through providing a shared, neutral space for different communities to come together.Read Less
