Our Covid-19 Response

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, our teams have been working hard to support and facilitate all levels of response in Lebanon and Jordan. Siren has more than 40 staff members and consultants now dedicated to supporting this response through our different programmes, as well as through the work that we have chosen to support and fund directly. 

Our Approach

Our Approach

Committed to making a difference, we believe that the development of capabilities cannot be done for organisations - it must be done by and in effective partnership with them. As a result, our approach is collaborative, client-centered and holistic. We employ rigorous problem analysis and innovative interventions that are gender and conflict sensitive to drive sustainable change. Working in post-conflict and fragile states, we recognise the value of being flexible, adaptable and responsive to our clients’ changing needs. Our multidisciplinary teams are diverse and highly skilled. We empower, develop and motivate our staff in recognition that it is our people that set us apart.
