Meet the Fellows

Out of a total of 113 impressive applications, we selected 5 organizations working on diverse projects inside Syria.

  • A service that matches job seekers with jobs in areas with high populations of displaced people.
  • A Facebook campaign using short films to break stereotypes between communities in Syria, in an attempt to rebuild the fabric of coexistence between Syrians.
  • An initiative using animation films and a Facebook chat bot to promote non-violence.
  • A digital game that enables Syrian children to gain artistic skills and education around the theme of peaceful coexistence.
  • An interactive map that documents memory of places inside Syria, challenging existing perceptions of Syria as defined by conflict.

Each organization is now undergoing a rigorous process to refine their idea and build the digital element of their work. Read more about the program in this blogpost.
