This project empowers Syrian women by creating a knowledge-sharing network and supporting their advocacy for rights and needs. It aims to foster participation and mobilize women for change, both locally and internationally. Existing women-led networks are utilized to enhance resilience and promote reintegration, equity, and peacebuilding.
SAWA for Development & Aid is a civil society organization founded in response to the arrival of Syrian families in Lebanon. They believe in dignity, freedom, and active participation in communities. SAWA supports marginalized communities through knowledge sharing and learning. They strive for social justice and work towards a democratic, pluralistic society based on human rights values.
"The psychological support, capacity building and self-empowerment sessions significantly impacted and influenced on our perspectives and personalities."
