NNA - "RISE2030" is a community-led initiative that focuses on women and youth empowerment, aiming at building capacity & improving living conditions of those living in deprived areas, through education, employment, and empowerment.

The initiative includes different components designed together to achieve rural development, individual empowerment, and decentralization of power.

RISE2030 is built on three major pillars: Empowerment, Equality, and Sustainability. Hence, Rise2030 launched the first all-women solar team in this cohort to challenge the gender stereotypes in male-dominated sectors.

The initiative implemented a community installation activity at the material recovery facility in Qaroun, serving Al Bohaira Federation of Municipalities.

The facility receives municipal solid waste from 6 municipalities, and performs a range of activities to recover material and achieve higher recycling rates. This includes waste sorting, baling, storing, and moving.--RISE 2030 Initiative
