Project timeline: 3/22/2023 – 9/15/2023
Brigadier General Mohamad El Affi proposed a multifaceted project that would fund Lebanon’s Land Border Regiments Training School (LBRTS). Losing 90% of its yearly budget, the LBRTS needed to secure funds in order to continue training the Lebanese Armed Forces on border control. As a solution, Brig. Gen. El Affi developed a Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) course to sell to national and international non-governmental organizations. With support from international partners, he organized two-week HEAT courses and plans to execute additional training in 2024.
