Atlas Relief and Development International is an international development organization registered in Germany, Turkey and the USA. Since its foundation in 2015 by the Syrian activist Razan Shalab AlSham, ARDI has established itself as an experienced development organisation and a trustworthy project partner of international promoters and local associations.
In 2018 the association Atlas Relief and Development International – ARDI e.V. was founded in Dresden. In cooperation with local associations, networks, technical experts, and community change makers, we will amplify the voices and perspectives of Germans and ‘new Dresdeners’ with refugee backgrounds to improve mutual understanding, social acceptance and integration. ARDI strives for peaceful coexistence that guarantees the democratic rights of all its inhabitants while at the same time respecting the individual cultures and backgrounds of its citizens.
