Refugee children in North Lebanon and North Jordan face anxiety, depression, sleeping problems, PTS, anger and aggression, lack of purpose, domestic violence, substance abuse, risk of recruitment, even increasing suicide. With the Syrian crisis in its 5th year, reduced international funds and resources, chronically overstretched services in host countries, we need innovative, scalable and effective methods to provide relief and empowerment and prevent long term consequences.


Through an integrated, innovative approach IAHV provides: trauma-relief, healing and resilience workshops for 18,000 children; in-depth training in human values and nonviolent empowerment for 400 children at risk of recruitment, self-harm and violent behaviour; stress management and resilience training for 3,300 frontline workers, teachers and caregivers to improve wellbeing, performance and coping capacity; Training of Trainers for 60 key front workers; Peace Ambassadors Training for 150 youth.

Long-Term Impact

This project enhances the wellbeing, resilience and psychological reintegration of 18.000 war-affected children and reduces their violent behaviour risk. Through a comprehensive community approach it strengthens acting capacity of 3.300 parents, care-givers, teachers and frontline workers to provide effective psycho-social support for thousands of children on a continuous basis in an integrated way. 150 Youth Peace Ambassadors are effective change agents preventing violence in their communities
