Dear Jusoor family and friends,
When COVID-19 struck the world with full force last March, the Jusoor Leadership Team braced for the worst. We shut down our education programs in Lebanon and we prepared to make critical cuts all across. At that time, we never imagined that 2020 could be a year marked by so much resilience and impact. But that’s just what it turned out to be. Looking back, we are exceptionally proud of what we accomplished together and the strength and creativity our community exhibited.
Together, with your support, we have been able to expand our programs to continue with our mission of investing in Syria’s youth for a better tomorrow. Since 2011, we have been able to fund more than 290 scholarships, helping Syrian youth not compromising their higher education rights. We have enrolled a total of 8,453 Syrian children in our education centers in Lebanon, providing them with the gift of education. We also managed to connect and mentor 669 students, guiding young Syrian dreamers to set them on the right career and academic paths. Additionally, we have engaged more than 136,000 community members of supporters, partners, and donors. Despite the 2020 crisis, Jusoor programs have expanded and enhanced.
Jusoor's 2020 Annual Report provides a highlight of all of Jusoor's activities over the last year, diving into each program and shedding light on some of the inspiring stories that make us proud and hopeful for the next generation of Syrian youth. The report also includes financial reports and a message from the board to our donors and supporters.
We are so grateful for your support during a challenging year. Thanks to you we've been able to change the lives of so many Syrian children and youth. We do hope you enjoy reading our report and do let us know if you have any questions.
