Supporting Self-Advocacy for Syrian Communities
With the ongoing civil war in Syria, citizens find it difficult to participate in civic activities, many of which are led by local organizations.
Together with our Tetra Tech sister office, Coffey, we supported an effort to bring training and support to three civil society organizations (CSO) and their local partners in Syria. The Building Syrian Civil Society project was funded by the UK's Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).
A cadre of our staffers led by technical director Hisham Jabi oversaw all aspects of building CSO capacity, including three training workshops focused on financial management, grants management, media & strategic communications, project management and conflict resolution. We also developed and managed the project’s mentoring component.
This video, shot inside Syria, incorporates footage captured by the CSOs and their local partners to highlight the impact of the project.
