At the height of the conflict in Syria, millions of Syrian refugees desperately sought haven all over the world. Germany has taken in more than 800,000. They have lost nearly everything that matters to them. Still, they are eager to rebuild and start anew—but it can feel impossible in a completely new place, with no friends or networks to rely on.
Several years ago, we launched a pilot program in Berlin to help Syrian refugees navigate in a foreign land. To help learn the language and find a place to belong. The pilot was guided by Syrian refugees, many of whom were once leaders in Questscope programs in Syria.
Today, the program is designed to help Syrians identify and encourage leaders in their new communities in Germany. We’re helping increase their connections to German people and institutions. At the same time, we’re working alongside German citizens to help them welcome and understand their new Syrian neighbors.
