Restoring public services in Bani Walid and beyond
The Facility, which recently relaunched as SFL—Stronger for Libya, aims to enhance the capacities of local and national institutions to deliver services to citizens. It gives an effective voice to women and youth and ensures that local strategies contribute to a more stable Libya.
Since its implementation in 2016, SFL has undertaken over 290 investment projects in seven target cities. These projects range from restoring power or water, to providing equipment or even repairing educational facilities in order to support the Libyan people’s own efforts. The Facility has delivered three ambulances, eight generators, and two garbage collection trucks to the municipality of Bani Walid.
In addition, SFL regularly meets with service companies and municipal communications staff to promote coordination and communication with citizens as well as training local groups and authorities on conflict avoidance and resolution.
“It is a challenge for us to deliver cleaning services to more than 150,000 citizens as well as to 25 educational facilities, 20 health centers and so on. We appreciate the assistance, which greatly helps us perform our duties. We thank the Stabilization Facility for Libya for its support to Bani Walid and to the Public Services and Hygiene General Company,” Fawzi says.
