Syrian Art for Education

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to share the art book for our fifth annual art auction. Each year, Jusoor works with partners to curate very special art pieces from talented Syrian artists. As in past years, this year’s auction will take place at our annual fundraising dinner in Berlin on June 4th.

For those of you who cannot attend, there is an opportunity to participate in the auction via absentee bidding through June 3rd. The instructions are included in the art book. Participating in this auction is a wonderful way to support Syrian education programs — not only will you be investing in the future of Syria and region, but you will also be able to feature a Syrian artist in your home.

Here are the two Jusoor programs we will be investing in with proceeds from the auction this year:

  •  100 Syrian Women, 10,000 Syrian Lives Scholarship Program — The scholarship program, which Jusoor launched in partnership with the Institute for International Education, identifies 100 exceptional Syrian women who have the potential to become extraordinary leaders and play a critical role in returning Syria to peace and stability. Scholarship recipients will enroll at universities in the United States and Canada and may pursue a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Ph.D. in the field of their choice. We believe that by educating 100 future leaders of Syria in the fields of business, technology, engineering, policy, and education, we will be impacting over 10,000 Syrians lives.
  •  Jusoor‘s Jarahiya school project in Lebanon — This 3 minute long video explains the project and spotlights the work to date.

Over the past five years, we have worked together to touch the lives of over 2,500 Syrian children and young people, either through a university education, our primary school programs in Lebanon, or our entrepreneurship and mentorship programs. On behalf of all those whose dreams we have made possible, thank you so very much for your extraordinary support.

Best wishes,
The Jusoor Leadership Team
