About The Syria Fund: The Syria Fund is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping individuals displaced by the Syrian refugee crisis. Our mission is to restore dignity and enrich the lives of Syrian refugees and other vulnerable families by providing critically-needed items and supporting educational programs. Partnering with local organizations, The Syria Fund supports an informal school in Azraq, Jordan, which offers catch-up classes for 105 Syrian refugee children. Thousands of Syrian refugees live in Jordan, outside of the refugee camps. Most are unable to work and many children have missed years of school because of the conflict.
