About us

Bridging the Opportunity Gap
since 2011

Jusoor (‘bridges’ in Arabic) is an international NGO with the mission of “Maximizing the potential of Syrian youth through education.” A leading global actor in educational and entrepreneurial programs for young Syrian and Middle East host communities, Jusoor is known for its innovative approach to development challenges, high-velocity execution, and the strength of its global strategic partnerships.

The Syrian conflict since 2011 as well as the economic collapse in Lebanon since 2019 have meant the support Jusoor is able to galvanize and provide is meaningful and in fact essential for the lives of thousands of young people.
