The past few months have been a whirlwind, to say the least. We saw the onset of a pandemic that resulted in quarantines internationally and left vulnerable people more vulnerable than ever before; the expanded impact of famine in Yemen, where people regularly struggle to find food on a regular basis; and then the Beirut explosion caused even more despair in Lebanon, leaving many homeless and many more refugees displaced yet again. 

In Syria, NuDay has been working to mitigate social distancing measures since April. NuDay's in-person programming was scaled down to ensure that participants minimized possible spreading. For our education programming, this meant that smaller class sizes were initially utilized. This fall, however, numbers of COVID cases rose. As a result, education activities have been limited to home teaching. Students are provided with school supplies and text books, and are visited on a regular basis by staff to ensure that they understand the material and continue to progress.


Even with the virus, we will not put education on the backburner.

Thank you for your ongoing support in this tough time.

With your support, we are ensuring Syria's women are aided with science and knowledge!

NuDay is building upon our education and livelihood principles through our Women's Empowerment Centers: two centers focused on empowering women through knowledge. This past year, we began offering science courses to the almost four thousand participants. Many displaced women were unable to complete their education, and this opportunity closes the knowledge gap. 

Women come to the center, excited and eager to learn. Through hands-on experiments, they gain a deeper understanding of how the world works. Learning together also provides a psycho-social healing of sorts, as women are united in their lived experiences and working to improve the conditions that they now live in. 

NuDay is inspiring the next generation of scientists, doctors, and innovators. Thank you for your support!

Students this year face a jam-packed semester, filled with fundamental classes and NuDay's specially designed science labs and computer labs. Through these hands-on courses, students will gain a deeper understanding of the topics introduced, meaning that they will have more intimate knowledge of vitally important skills.

NuDay's science lab students have delved into the basic chemistry, learning about chemical bonds and the periodic table, as well as biology, where they have had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the human body through real-scale anatomy models of the body, such as organs, muscles, and bones!

Yet another school year has begun, and with it, NuDay's students are back to the books!

Students this year face a jam-packed semester, filled with fundamental classes and NuDay's specially designed science labs and computer labs. Through these hands-on courses, students will gain a deeper understanding of the topics introduced, meaning that they will have more intimate knowledge of vitally important skills. 

NuDay's students are determined. Take Amina, a sixth grader who is determined to become a doctor when she grows up. The science lab is allowing Amina to deepen her knowledge of subjects such as biology and chemistry. The computer course is similarly preparing her, teaching her that she can conduct her own research insofar as she is aware of how to do so.

The Future Generation Initiative is doing this with your support. It is through your advocacy that NuDay is able to ensure that Syria's future has the ability to rebuild their lives through following their dreams. From Syria's students to you: thank you.

White Helmets Training at a Kid Friendly Zone
White Helmets Training at a Kid Friendly Zone

The past few months have been busy for students and teachers alike at NuDy's Future Generation Schools. 

 

Our students have been excelling inside and outside of the classroom. With access to formal education, students are beginning to feel like children once more.

 

For NuDay, schools are not just spaces of learning but of building community, That's why we host what we call "Kid Friendly Zones" events meant to bring families together and celebrate children. Events are held at our schools, in order to ensure a positive connection to our learning centers. During these celebrations, children play games together, receive prizes, and participate in trainings (such as first aid trainings held by the White Helmets), and just exist together.

 

Your donation is going towards supporting the needs of Syria's youth, one child at a time, be that through eriching their learning experiences, making new friends, or simply coming together in the name of fun.
