WHO WE ARE?
Human Development Foundation is a faith-inspired charity that was set up back in 2012 in light of the Syrian conflict. Our main objective was to alleviate the immediate dangers which Syrians were facing and to then set up a foundation for educational projects. We have now started working in other parts of the world such as the Philippines and Yemen, but much of our work is still focused on Syrian refugees and their host countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.
Education is a Great Equaliser
Our motto, ‘Education is a great equaliser’ plays a fundamental role in the way we view the work we do. While giving aid to disadvantaged communities helps the problem short term, ultimately it is the skills and psychological support in the long term that allows these communities to be uplifted out of their situation.
