WE BELIEVE IN CULTIVATING

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS 

THAT SUPPORT SYRIA'S PROBLEM-SOLVERS AND FACILITATE OPPORTUNITIES WHERE

MOST SEE THE IMPOSSIBLE

 

Our sustainable development program seeks to restore the dignity and quality of life for the communities that we serve. Our team partners with local communities on the ground to support projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians. To date, Karam has helped fund vegetable gardens, urban farms, and local businesses to help boost the local economy and provide work for local members of the community so that they can sustain themselves and support their families, rather than depend on handouts.

Scents of syria

From Damascus and Aleppo to Your Home.

Each item is handmade and embroidered by women in Damascus who work in order to support their families. They lost homes, family members and jobs, but remained determined to restore traces of the dignified life they once had. Transport a precious Scent of Syria into your home, while supporting this small business run by women in Damascus. 

International shipping for the Scents of Syria Project is generously provided by Aramex - www.aramex.com

Happy FARM

Situated amongst the olive groves of Idleb, Maarat Nouman is a city of 150,000 people including over 50,000 displaced from across Syria — many of them women and children.

Karam Foundation’s Happy Farm is in the small rural town of Kafr Rouma, just to the west. The Farm, implemented and managed by our field staff inside Syria, is an innovative humanitarian project designed to empower local communities and contribute to their resilience.

Happy Farm is a self-sustaining cow and chicken farm that employs vulnerable yet technically capable families in the local community to run the farm. We also have a Syrian veterinarian on staff to monitor the health of the animals.
