Firefly International helps victims of the Syrian conflict become leaders of their own recovery. Early in 2016, Firefly stepped up our commitment to Syrian refugees, helping to design, fund and set up a youth centre in Antakya, Turkey. The centre is entirely run by Syrian refugees for Syrian refugee children. We offer hope and support through providing a way back into education and a plug for the lost years of learning due to displacement and conflict.
Our outreach work takes us into Northern Syria and throughout the Hatay province, reaching around 1000 children each month helping them to build a better future for themselves and their communities. Please see links to stories of children who have attended Firefly for Syrian’s centres in Syria and Turkey.
