Financial Sponsorship

In situations of violence, the majority of interventions are taken by people at risk themselves, usually with the help of their relatives, friends and communities. A common behavior is fleeing from the place of danger if people manage to do so, or avoid the risk by refraining from going to schools or markets, and in some cases the action taken by some people at risk and their families may cause more harm, such as early marriages to mitigate the financial burden and child labor. In these cases, alternatives must be provided to achieve relative security for these people. In these cases, Ghiras Al-Nahda provide support to improve living conditions (food, shelter, safety equipment for shelters, financial support either monthly or one-time) to affected families who lost their family supporter/ head of family either during the conflict or they were detained or injured, in order to help them meet their basic needs without the need to send their children to work or marry early, or resort to any other methods that cause harm to some vulnerable groups in order to meet the financial needs.

Orphan Sponsorship

Orphaned Children are our responsibility, and it’s our duty to take care of them if we can, as prophet Muhamad peace be upon him say: “I and Orphan Sponsor are like these in paradise, pointing to his index and middle fingers while separating them a little” Rawah Al-Bukhari

Ghiras Al-Nahda provided cash assistance to children who lost the father or both parents who are under fifteen years on a monthly basis, through the “Orphan Sponsorship” program, which aims to support children who lost the family supporter morally and financially, by providing monthly financial support where the sponsor can manage and follow-up the process through a comprehensive system, in addition to monitoring the children’s condition and health status, and providing them with food, medicine, and shelter they need if possible.

Sponsorship conditions: ” children who lost the father or both parents, children whose parent is detained or disappeared”.

Sponsorship is terminated when: ” Orphan is older than 15 years, an orphan can not be reached, an orphan is dead, female orphan are married”



Awareness campaigns to reduce the risks of war remnants

Children, in particular, are at higher risk of being exposed to explosive due to their constant movement from and to school while playing at roads as they lack awareness of the danger and threat these explosives holds. In addition, some concepts related to war remnants may decrease the school attendance rate and encourage parents not to continue their children’s education. Taking all these risks into consideration, Ghiras Al-Nahda worked hard to conduct raising awareness campaigns and distributed flyers to increase children, parents and teachers’ awareness on measures to be taken when finding any suspicious objects or explosives.


Distributing brochures and awareness flyers on danger of war remnants and mines.


  • 10156 Children

Back to School Campaigns

Children and teenagers out of school are more exposed to violence and rape, and more vulnerable toward recruitment, labor, and other life-threatening activities. While children who are attending school and getting formal or non-formal education during the conflict and displacement get access to life-saving knowledge and information and surviving skills through valuable promotion, human rights, conflict resolution, and awareness-raising. That is why Ghiras Al-Nahda implemented 4 back to school campaigns for children who have dropped out of education through posters, publications and a motivational drawing competition for children with prizes.


Safety and Security Equipment

Ghiras Al-Nahda seek to provide equipment needed to improve and make educational process safe and child friendly.

– Conducting trainings on evacuation plans and fire hazard in partnership with civil defense. 


One Body for all families

The most common copying mechanism for violence cases is to run away if possible or quite going to schools and markets, some people may even resort to negative coping mechanism like early marriages and child labor. Ghiras Al-Nahda Protection department intervene in these cases through provision of monthly or one-time financial support for affected families in addition to relief aid for some cases such as support for patients who need hard operations or specific treatment.
