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.

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

ARDI is very proud of the hard work and expertise of all our local partners in Northeastern Syria (NES) who are working on designing and leading "technical vocational educational training" (#TVET) courses to support the most marginalized members of their communities - including disadvantaged women, men and women with physical disabilities, and out of school/out of work female and male youth.One of our amazing NES partners, منظمة أمل الباغوز للتنمية Albaghooz Hope For Dev is doing a fantastic job of designing and leading TVET courses within the renewable / alternative energy sector to help the community members learn how to operate and fix #solar panels. Great work, #AlbaghoozHope team!In the words of ARDI's Executive Director, "One of our main missions is to help identify the key needs within the communities we support and then, to work collaboratively with local, trusted actors to help fill those gaps and add value to our partners' local communities". We are excited to see that, through this project, so many very deserving women, men, and diverse youth will be engaged in skill-building opportunities that can lead to meaningful opportunities for their futures!
