Meet Israa Tateen

In 2011, fleeing the war in Syria, Israa Tateen arrived in Lebanon and participated in a training on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) led by Developmental Action to People – Mousawat, an organization dedicated to promoting gender equality and women’s rights and providing psychosocial support to gender-based violence (GBV) survivors in northern Lebanon. She currently works as a Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) Manager and PSEA Focal Point at Mousawat, where she supports the organization’s target groups, volunteers, and team members through the creation of safe spaces and the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse. 

Israa Tateen from Developmental Action for All People – Mousawat, together with Roua Dandachi from the Lebanese Women Democratic Gathering (RDFL), will develop a peer learning project focused on trainings and site visits. Israa and team members from Mousawat will train RDFL on PSEA issues, while Roua and her team from RDFL will train Mousawat on the management of GBV cases. Both CSOs will subsequently raise awareness among their target groups on sexual harassment and how to benefit from the services offered by the organizations.
