Women Making Changes Through Trust and Empowerment

ARDI Director and Co-Founder, Razan Shalab AlSham, was selected to participate as an honored speaker at the TEDx Dresden event in Dresden, Germany on August 26th, 2018. Speaking about her own personal experiences as a Syrian activist and development professional, Razan’s talk, titled “Women Making Changes Through Trust and Empowerment” sheds light on the horrors of war, the challenges faced by Syrians inside and outside of their countries, the amazing efforts to support Syrians being led by women, and ends with a message for hope and peace.

ARDI is very excited to see all of our project partners hard at work to implement their self-design #TVET (technical vocational educational training) activities in Northeastern Syria! One of our partners, منظمة حماية البيئة والتنمية المستدامة, is doing an amazing job to engage marginalized communities (including women and men with physical disabilities and out of school/out of work youth) in their #Hope_Center TVET courses, which cover locally needed focus areas such as: Women's hair styling/men's barber skills, technical computer skills building, and mobile phone repair.We are proud of our partners' efforts to identify the most needed livelihood focus areas and specifically work to engage and support members of the local community who have faced the most significant barriers when it comes to economic empowerment and job skills training. Our partners are leading important efforts towards meaningful change!We encourage you to follow along with our local partners and also learn more about ARDI at: www.atlasrdi.com ... See MoreSee Less

Do you know the difference between asylum seeker, internally displaced person, and refugee? They share similarities but it is important to know the differences, especially if you work in the humanitarian sector

The TVET course implementation is going really well; participants are able to develop a variety of personal and professional skills through these programs. Look out for another update soon!
