This program aims to boost self-reliance among refugees allowing them the chance to develop their skills and provide for their own needs. Impoverished refugees, families lacking a breadwinner, and needy women would invest in their own capacities relying on human and economic resources within their community. Eventually, the program seeks to lead refugees towards independence on relief services from donors and relief associations. Through boosting their self-reliance, the refugees will become integrated in the production cycle and able to participate in serving their community i.e. a chance for them to participate in the reconstruction of Syria at later time.
 
The program in 2016 helped provide development opportunities for 830 beneficiaries including supporting more than 242 small productive projects and 28 stores in the charitable markets (Al Khair Markets)  from which 74 families benefit. The program also helped to establish 9 development projects employing 57 laborers, and sponsored training workshops from which 240 persons benefitted.

This program is concerned with providing primary and secondary healthcare for Syrian refugees in Lebanon in order to meet the deficiency in health services provided to them, especially in the light of limited provisions by international organizations officially concerned with refugees’ health affairs as compared to the actual needs; not to mention the high costs of medical care and hospitalization in Lebanon, which cannot be met by the limited financial abilities of refugees. 
 
Thus, the healthcare program is one of the most important programs launched by URDA, and it has an important share in its projects. It is also one of the programs launched since the establishment of the Union, as part of its pursuit to organize individual efforts to follow up on the sick and wounded Syrian refugees, through medical sub-committees working across Lebanon and affiliated with a central medical committee based in Beirut.
