The Asfari Foundation

The Asfari Foundation is a British grant making charity, set up and funded by Sawsan and Ayman Asfari, to build a just world where people have equal opportunity to transform their lives, invest in their communities, and shape the future of their countries. The Foundation focuses its efforts in the Levant and UK, with particular attention to the situation of the Syrian diaspora.

The Foundation strengthens civil society organisations through long-term funding, advice, networking, and capacity development, enabling civil society to play its vital role in ensuring accountability, protecting disadvantaged communities, informing and engaging citizens. The Foundation promotes the creation of education and economic opportunities for young people, building skills in innovation and entrepreneurship and supporting young entrepreneurs to develop sustainable social enterprises.   

Together with its partners, the Foundation will continue to contribute to real change for young people and civil society from Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and the UK.
