Syriana provides a platform for any project that shares its mission of improving the lives of Syrians wherever they existed
After decades of underdevelopment, the inhabitants of Swaida in southern Syria face existential threats. The brutal Syrian war, the sanctions, and COVID-19 have impoverished families, disrupted, and increased disparities in health services, and devastated the fragile, remittance-based economy. Responding to these needs, we employ a three-pronged strategy in Swaida with a goal of expanding it across Syria:
1. Sustainable aid projects for families of victims of war. At a cost of $250-$1000 each, our pilot water-efficient, hydroponic and animal farming projects, provide feasible and reliable sources for basic long-term household needs with a 12-months payback period.
2. Health services development program: most imminently in combating COVID-19. We will staff and equip five mobile healthcare units, partnering with local health care providers and organizations, covering underserved rural areas with in-home treatment capabilities including home-oxygen, oximeters, and medications.
3. Socioeconomic development program: this program focuses of empowering the different sectors of societies including:
A) the agricultural workforce in depopulated and shrinking villages with a lease-to-own program of high-production ecological and hydroponic agricultural models.
B) unemployed university and technical school graduates via Train-to-Employ programs providing 6-month IT training for 100, followed by 1-year guaranteed employment by startups linked with US-based IT firms.
