SAWA Background 

SAWA for Development and Aid is a Civil Society Organization (CSO) initially founded in December 2011 as a spontaneous response to the arrival of the first 40 Syrian families displaced from Syria into the North of Lebanon. This initiative then grew to include both local and international activists who worked together (SAWA in Arabic), united by their belief in individuals’ right to live in dignity and freedom, and to be active individuals in their communities, and wherever they may be. In order to better support vulnerable communities, especially from those internally displaced within Syria to Syrian refugees in neighboring countries, Sawa’s activists focused on sharing their knowledge and exchanging their experiences.
