Studio Syria Partners with other Organizations

As a small organization Studio Syria finds it beneficial to partner with larger groups to reach as many children as possible. We work in Zaatari Camp with security clearance and a great deal of assistance from Save the Chilrdren Jordan. We are currently working with International Relief and Developement to supply their library. We delivered art supplies to the UN Women's center in Zaatari. And we went shopping for art supplies with childhood trauma specialist Alexandra Chen from Mercy Corps in September to help to supply their child friendly spaces. You can hear an brief NPR interview with Alexandra about her work here.
