Strengthening civil-society structures in Syria


The target groups of our projects to strengthen civil-society structures in Syria are especially young people and women. Because of their too often marginalized places in society, these social actors are the ones genuinely interested in real societal change.

We’ve been active on the ground since 2006/2007. Our first project in Syria was to create a center for street kids in al‑Qāmišlī. In the end the project couldn’t be implemented because we didn’t receive final authorization from the Syrian Ministry for Labor and Social Development. However, it was a valuable project for our work in that we made important connections and collected useful experience on the ground. This attempt to create a youth center for street kids laid the foundations for our future projects. Please contact us if you are interested in knowing more about our current work.
