This project will establish three Community Service Centres (previously called the Psychosocial Support Service Centres) to contribute and build individual resilience. The centers are based on a model previously successfully implemented by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent. The crisis has dramatically reduced access to education and learning for Syria’s children and youth. The protracted nature of the crisis is affecting a whole generation, hindering their opportunities to develop capacities and the resources they need for a productive future. Female children and young girls, perceived as being particularly vulnerable to violence, has resulted in parents withdrawing their female children from school. In addition, many children are forced to work to support their families, due to the loss or absence of a primary financial provider and limited or no access to alternative sources of income. Three Community Centres will be established in three governorates: Hama, Homs and Rural Damascus
Through this project, SARC will establish three new Community Centres. The Centres will focus in providing psychosocial support, livelihoods and lessons to children and adolescents.
The Centres will have a strong focus in providing lessons and support to children and adolescent in school ages to ensure they can reinsert into the official school system and perform to be able to advance and complete the school grades.
