Support for young internally displaced people in Syria

Due to conflicts and disasters, there are over 45 million internally displaced people in the world. In war torn Syria alone, there are almost 6.5 million people displaced in their own country. Despite the high number, there is a lack of information about the situation of internally displaced persons. They live in vulnerability and often have only limited access to basic resources. Girls and young women are particularly vulnerable and risk not being able to take advantage of an education but are instead exposed to violence and child marriage.

In this project, the Swedish Postcode Foundation, together with Project Soar, wants to provide support to girls who are internally displaced persons in northwestern Syria in order to increase the target group’s autonomy and improve their faith in the future.


What the program delivers

The project will map the situation of internally displaced persons in Syria and adapt educational programs to the local context. Teachers will be trained to spread knowledge about self-esteem, self-confidence, self-reliance, knowledge of rights, control over one’s own body and belief in the future, to students. Finally, Project Soar will work with the Ministry of Education to integrate the program into the Syria’s existing education structures.

Why we support this project

This project contributes to fulfilling the Postcode Foundation’s statutes to provide support to children and adults in vulnerable situations or disasters.
