Jordan Spring Workshops

Save the dateProject Amal ou Salam’s next workshops will be in Jordan, April 1-6.

We’ve become a lot more than just a programme. I think we’ve become a movement of people who share the same beliefs and share the same ideology. You’re always thinking what can I offer to Syria? I think Project Amal ou Salam is giving people a way to take their own expertise and give that to the kids. Which is so refreshing and rewarding.

(Nousha Kabawat, founder&director)

Twice a year, around 30 international volunteers gather from all over the world to join Project Amal ou Salam and the Children of Syria in working for peace.

We organise five volunteer-run workshops for kids aged 5 to 14: arts, music, photography, sports and health&hygiene. Click here to learn more about our workshops.

We also organise a Career Day for older kids to introduce different career paths and encourage young men and women to think positively about their own future.

Euphrates Institute 2016 Visionary of the Year

Our founder and director Nousha Kabawat was chosen as 2016 Visionary of the Year by the Euphrates Institute:

Every year, the Euphrates Institute recognizes one person doing extraordinary work at a grassroots level, striving to make the idealistic realistic and the impossible possible.
Visionaries are those whose fearless and indomitable spirit has allowed them to transform the hearts, minds and actions of those around them, and to reveal a solution where there was previously despair.

The Visionary of the Year award is a way for the Euphrates Institute to both honor and spotlight their work.

With the Syrian conflict at the forefront of our news and heavy in our hearts, this year we honor Nousha Kabawat, a Syrian-Canadian who founded Project Amal ou Salam (Hope and Peace), a grassroots organization that is dedicated to empowering Syrian refugee children and helping them to shape a better future.

On our Euphrates trip to the Middle East in September, we had the opportunity to spend a day with Nousha at Project Amal ou Salam’s school in Jerash, Jordan. It was incredible to see Nousha’s leadership and energy in action, as well as her commitment to the school’s staff and students. We were deeply inspired by the light and hope the kids expressed as they told us about their ambitions, played games and sang songs with us.

We are very proud to receive an award that recognises the impact and worth of our work.

This is the amazing video they shot while visiting Amal ou Salam school in Jarash, Jordan. Enjoy!

Happy holidays from our family to yours!

Keep spreading the love!
