Help us respond to the refugee crisis and children forced to flee their homes by supporting Project Amal ou Salam ("Hope and Peace").
Since the conflict began in 2011, intense fighting in Syria has driven over 8.4 million refugees to seek safety in neighboring countries. Over half of these people are children. Often escaping the violence on foot in the dark of night. These children face grave threats to their life and the constant struggle for food, clean water, healthcare and education continues to worsen by the day. No one knows when these refugees will be able to return to their homes.
GreaterGood.org partners with Project Amal ou Salam to provide exceptional leadership through educators for a generation of children who desperately need it. Each day Project Amal ou Salam and GreaterGood supports 850 Syrian refugee children and a total of 4,800 children over the last 3 years.
You can help! Just $7.20 gives the gift of education to 12 refugee children! As recent policies have made it even more difficult for Syrian refugees to find stability and safety, now is an important time to make an incredible difference. Join us, as we strive to educate these children at a pivotal point in their lives.
"Children are the only hope now left for Syria" — Nousha Kabawat, Founder, Amal ou Salam.
Update from the Field
Meet Omar! Omar is one of the incredible children that your donations helped. Omar is one of the young children who attends the Amal ou Salam School in Jerash, Jordan as part of our program for pre-school and kindergarten aged children to give them a head start on their education. Omar and children his age, are able to learn the fundamentals needed for their education and prepare to attend school regularly with their Jordanian peers. For many children Omar’s age, living as a refugee in Jordan is all he has known. The ongoing stress and trauma he faces puts him at a disadvantage to his Jordanian peers which can result in poor grades, difficulty coping with the rigors of a school setting, depression, anxiety, and acting out. The focus on early childhood education prepares him to attend and succeed in the Jordanian schools he will enter in just a few short months.
Thanks to YOUR donations Project Amal ou Salam was able to successfully provide pre-kindergarten and early childhood education programming for hundreds of children like Omar.
Project Amal ou Salam is a volunteer-run, grassroots organization that works with Syrian refugee children. Project Amal ou Salam believes that every child has the right to an education, to a childhood free from trauma and violence, and to the hope of a peaceful tomorrow.
