nashmiabazidi e1411756841604The crisis in Syria has had a detrimental effect on economic livelihood for many families, particularly women-led households (who have lost their husbands / fathers). Your monthly sponsorship will help provide critical social services, job training and placement, as well as basic social integration for those Syrian women.

The Syrian conflict has severely impacted childhood education throughout the country, stalling education for hundreds of thousands of children and young people for a period of several years. This has created an entire generation of Syrians whose education levels are far behind the norm, putting at risk their literacy, critical thinking skills, and future opportunities. Such conditions are breeding grounds for poverty, extremism and social impedances. Help sponsor a classroom that would get our children back on the fast track of learning. Your sponsorship goes towards our school projects for the refugees, and would assist is in providing for facilities, teachers, and books.

The Syrian Forum believes that gifting a fishing rod is better than gifting fish. Help sponsor an out of work bread-bringer to receive vocational training and job placement so that they can provide for their families once more.

Many children and young Syrians were physically harmed by the very violent war in Syria, and suffered permanent disability which led to a growing sense of inferiority and lack of involvement, and interaction with others.

Nojoom Al Ghad (Stars of the Future) Sports Academy, one of the Syrian Forum’s programs, has launched a sports program that would improve the skills of people with disabilities and those affected by the war in Syria, trainers and trainees, through individual sports like table tennis (ping pong), and team sports like basketball.

These sport activities will help people with disabilities improve their health and mental well-being, reduce anxiety and depression, increase their self-esteem and gain new experiences and new friendships.
 
Nojoom Al Ghad Academy is a youth sports program that seeks to serve young Syrian athletes in Turkey. It was established in 2014 to provide the Syrian refugee youth with constructive activities, to engage and build strong relationships with each other, and to foster healthy integration within the Turkish society.
 
The first phase of this program has been completed successfully by having 6 players join and training them 3 hours a week on a regular basis. Lots of people with disabilities are hoping to be part of this activity in the second phase of this program.
 
The Academy is planning to reach 20 players by the end of 2016, which will cost $27,000 to provide special care, transportation, wheelchairs and coaches’ salaries.
 
Don’t miss the chance of being part of fulfilling their hope

Many Syrian children going back to school will not have the proper tools to ensure they can achieve their potential or even study at all. Fleeing violence is very difficult and stressful for the child and the family. But with your help we can make the transition easier by ensuring these children are well equipped and ready to learn.

You can make a donation which will help us to purchase items like backpacks, pens and pencils, and pay for additional needs like uniforms and text books for internally displaced Syrian children and Syrian refugees who are in need.

The cost to sponsor one child is $100. Please consider donating today to help Rebuild Syrian Lives.
