Beyond the emergency needs of those caught in the conflict, the hope and future livelihoods of whole communities has been torn apart. Many Syrians have been forced to abandon their studies or careers. Millions of children have been out of education for the past five years.
We are working to empower and rebuild lives. This not only means access to clean water, food and healthcare – it means restoring hope, creating opportunities and building an environment that will help to rebuild communities. We want to restore the dignity of the Syrian human being.
Here’s what we’re providing:
- Opportunities for Syrians to develop existing skills or to acquire new skills
- We support schools with funding or supplies to enable them to remain functioning
- We run training courses for disadvantaged people and heads of households to help them build skills that could become a source of livelihood
- We employ Syrians living in the areas local to where we work to provide them with the opportunity to earn a living and acquire new skills, which enables them to provide for their families and empowers the local economy
- We’re helping to get people back into work by providing job opportunities, and encouraging beneficiaries to think beyond relying on humanitarian aid alone
