    About Karam Foundation

    Karam Foundation is a Syrian-led organization founded in 2007 in Chicago. We have built two Karam Houses, innovative workspaces for Syrian refugees, in Istanbul and Reyhanli, Turkey, which defy traditional approaches to refugee education.

    At Karam House, hundreds of Syrian refugee teens learn through access to technology (maker spaces, internet, computers), expert mentorship (Syrians refugee architects and engineers), and a sophisticated design-based curriculum (developed by MIT grads) that teaches youth how to build their ideas and their community. 

    At Karam, we think about refugees and humanitarian aid differently and so we do things differently. Our approach to aid is that of a sustainable nature, rather than a one-time handout. We believe in investing deeply in communities affected by conflict, and are on a mission to build 10,000 Leaders for the future of Syria by 2028.
