The Asfari Foundation
The Asfari Foundation is a young and energetic British grant making charity set up and funded by Sawsan and Ayman Asfari.
We believe in young people. We know that, empowered by a good education and opportunities, young people can create very positive change in their communities and the world at large. Our vision is for a world in which educated, tolerant young people are actively engaged in creating productive and open societies.
We make grants totalling over £3.5m to over 50 partners per year. These international and local organisations work on some of the key issues of our time: the crisis in Syria; youth education and employment; and the development of citizenship and a resilient civil society. Together with our partners, we identify, develop and fund ideas that deliver change for thousands of young people from Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and the UK.
