About Us

We are a Syrian-led organization founded in 2007 in Chicago. Karam means generosity in Arabic. We have supported Syrian communities in Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and the US since 2011. We believe in the concept of radical generosity — supporting refugee communities in holistic and empowering ways. Our team has built pathways to leadership for refugee youth from access to education, creating innovative safe spaces, to providing higher education scholarships. We have built two Karam Houses, innovative community workspaces for Syrian refugee teens, in Istanbul and Reyhanli, Turkey, which defy traditional approaches to refugee education. At Karam Houses, hundreds of Syrian refugee teens learn through access to technology, expert mentorship, and a sophisticated design-based curriculum that teaches youth how to build their ideas and their community. 


We think about refugees and humanitarian aid differently and so we do things differently. We believe in investing deeply in communities affected by conflict. We are on a mission to build 10,000 Leaders for the Future of Syria by 2028.
