Karam House

Karam House is a community innovation workspace where Syrian refugee youth turn their passions and ideas into realities. It is a place where they can build strong relationships with peers and mentors. It is a place where they can learn competitive skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics that are essential to advancing their educations and futures. Most of all, Karam House is an inspiring, safe, and healing space for Syrian teenagers – who have lost so much through the trauma of displacement and war – to be teenagers. Karam House is a place where teenagers become leaders. It's a place where young Syrian women and men can use to learn and grow: "I have an idea, I can do it at Karam House." "I want to learn English, I can learn it at Karam House." "I want to go to university, I can find a mentor at Karam House." "I feel alone, I can meet people like me at Karam House." "I have a project, I can make it at Karam House." "I am more than a refugee, I can be myself at Karam House." We had an idea: to make a place where Syrian refugee teens can build their ideas, achieve their goals, and reach their full potential. So we built Karam House.
