The war in Syria is entering its fifth year. More than 400,000 have been killed and millions displaced. #MeWeSyria–a program of Ashoka’s Youth Venture— is currently working to activate storytellers and change-makers in refugee communities in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan thanks in part to support from the German Government, Porticus Foundation’s Community Arts Labs,  and Ashoka’s Youth Venture. We are working with refugee partners such as Questscope NGO, UNFPA, DARB-SYR and others. To learn more about #MeWeSyria, download our brochure.
