WHERE DO THE BRILLIANT, INNOVATIVE, AND CREATIVE IDEAS OF SYRIAN REFUGEE YOUTH GROW?
AT KARAM HOUSE!
Karam House is a community innovation workspace where Syrian refugee youth turn their passions and ideas into realities. It is a place where they can build strong relationships with peers and mentors. It is a place where they can learn competitive skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics that are essential to advancing their educations and futures. Most of all, Karam House is an inspiring, safe, and healing space for Syrian teenagers – who have lost so much through the trauma of displacement and war – to be teenagers.
Karam House is a place where teenagers become leaders. It's a place where young Syrian women and men can use to learn and grow:
"I have an idea, I can do it at Karam House."
"I want to learn English, I can learn it at Karam House."
"I want to go to university, I can find a mentor at Karam House."
"I feel alone, I can meet people like me at Karam House."
"I have a project, I can make it at Karam House."
"I am more than a refugee, I can be myself at Karam House."
We had an idea: to make a place where Syrian refugee teens can build their ideas, achieve their goals, and reach their full potential. So we built Karam House.
JOIN US IN INVESTING IN A HOPEFUL AND INSPIRING FUTURE GENERATION OF SYRIANS.
A Higher Education for Syria's Youth
Karam Foundation has always been focused on the importance of education. We believe that education is the key to helping Syrian students achieve their goals, become contributing members of their host society, and to rebuild Syria in the future. We are proud to announce the launch of the Karam Scholars program to assist Syrian students who have fled to Turkey and those who have been resettled in the United States and are on a journey to pursue higher education.
Join us in support of some of the brightest and bravest youth in the world.

FAWAZ AND AMNEH KANNOUT SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Karam Foundation is proud to announce the Fawaz and Amneh Kannout Scholarship Fund for Syrian refugee students. Dr. Amneh and her late husband. Dr. Fawaz Kannout, have been among Karam's biggest supporters since 2007 – from our very first event until today. Dr. Fawaz lived a beautiful life of generosity and kindness. The Kannout family embodies the true meaning of Karma. We are dedicating our Karam Scholars programs in Jordan to Dr. Fawaz's memory and his lifelong commitment to helping others in need. This program grants university scholarships to deserving Syrian refugee students in Jordan. This year, 14 students are being supported in this program.
We hope the Fawaz and Amneh Kannout Scholarship Program will inspire and support the building of a strong, future generation of Syrian leaders.
Syrian School Support
Karam Foundation is collaborating with Taalim, a Syrian NGO on the ground to rebuild schools that have been damaged by barrel bombs and airstrikes. Karam supports the rehabilitation of these schools so that kids inside Syria can continue their education. Karam Foundation also supports several other schools in Syria including several underground schools in Aleppo. We will continue to support schools inside Syria because all children deserve the right to an education even in a war-zone.
