This group of artists, activists, and organizers would create an informal care exchange in neighborhoods in Beirut where a high number of single mothers live below the poverty line. It would focus on single mothers to be nominated as childminders in their own households and share resource boxes. A developmental play expert will contribute in the play training along with the social work and education inputs. The program would thoroughly address the unpaid labor of mothers and acknowledge their role performing labor. This program would also include local events, such as storytelling sessions, feminist meetings, and workshops for women of all nationalities, aspiring to create a localized economy, a new system of support, and a sustainable community network through a variety of feminist and arts practices.
