Who We Are
The Awareness Foundation was founded in 2003 by The Revd Nadim Nassar. The Foundation, a registered charity in England & Wales (No 1099873), is an international humanitarian charity driven by Christian values which builds peace through education and training. Our two core programmes, LITTLE HEROES and AMBASSADORS FOR PEACE, aim to equip and empower children and young people in Syria and Iraq to become agents of peace and reconciliation.
Our objectives are to:
help children in Syria to regain hope and become accepting of others;
empower children and young people in Syria and Iraq to promote peace and reconciliation[n1] ;
build partnerships between people of different faiths and different religious denominations;
enable people to live generous, hospitable and peaceful lives and to promote peace and reconciliation; and
build understanding between the West and the Middle East.
We are active in the UK, North America (USA and Canada), the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine), and in Hong Kong. We work with all Christian denominations, and we partner with many other faith organisations and leaders.
Founded in London in 2003 by The Revd Nadim Nassar, we have evolved as an international Christian educational charity, offering a wide range of programmes all over the world in diverse venues including churches, universities, community centres and prisons.
