Support them

The Syrian Society for Social Development, our Syrian national partner, provides mentorship, educational opportunities, and health services for 1,500 youth at two detention facilities in Damascus – one for young men and one for young women.

SSSD also implements The Victim Empathy Program to help youth who’ve committed an infraction take responsibility for their crime and understand the impact it creates on themselves and others.

This program is also implemented in community centers with the goal of building awareness around the personal and family issues that arise during times of conflict.

Facilitators help identify risk factors, discuss the impact of violence, and share ways to cope and adapt to uncertainty.
