Healing, Resilience and Preventing Extremism among war-affected children in Jordan and Lebanon

Project Summary

Project Summary

16,000+ children from Syria, Lebanon and Jordan will receive basic training in stress relief and resilience tools, while 400 children most at risk of violent behaviour, self-harm, suicide, aggression or recruitment, will receive deep trauma-relief, empowerment and human values training. Specially trained Youth Peace Ambassadors will design and implement awareness-raising and peacebuilding projects to prevent and reduce violence in their families, schools and communities.

In parallel, we will provide parents, families, caregivers, community members, teachers, caseworkers, youth and protection workers, with stress management and coping tools to enable them to provide a supportive and violence-free environment for the children. A selected number of teachers and NGO staff will be trained as trainers to keep multiplying these techniques in their schools and communities on a sustainable basis.

The EU Ambassador to Lebanon, His Excellency Ralph Tarraf received our Peace Ambassadors in Beirut yesterday.

We had a very warm, honest and appreciative exchange in which the youth from Tripoli shared the big changes that happened in their lives, told personal stories how their difficult family dynamics were positively impacted, and expressed their energy and vision to reduce embedded forms of violence in their society through the peacebuilding projects they have taken up.

The energy and enthusiasm of everyone to continue on this mission now that the EU funds have ended, were palpable in the room. “You have changed our lives. We are so grateful. Now we will continue no matter what.”

Thank you European Union in Lebanon !!!

استقبل سفير الاتحاد الأوروبي في لبنان ، رالف طراف ، سفراء السلام في بيروت أمس.

كان لدينا تبادل حار ونزيه وتقديري شارك فيه الشباب من طرابلس التغييرات الكبيرة التي حدثت في حياتهم ، وشاركوا قصص شخصية عن التأثيرات الايجابية على علاقاتهم الأسرية الصعبة ، وعبروا عن طاقاتهم ورؤيتهم للحد من أشكال العنف في مجتمعهم من خلال مشاريع بناء السلام التي تبنوها.

كان هناك طاقة وحماس من قبل الجميع لمواصلة هذه المهمة الآن بعد أن انتهاء تمويل الاتحاد الأوروبي. "لقد غيرت حياتنا. نحن ممتنون جدا. الآن سوف نستمر بغض النظر عن ذلك."
شكرا لكم European Union in Lebanon

A video made by our youth Peace Ambassadors, that defines cyber blackmail and sheds light on the role of society in this cause.

"IAHV programs have had a huge impact in Menshieh, on personal lives, work, homes and the community as a whole. You have changed the mentality of this community. It created brotherhood among the communities here. The violence among the children has reduced. They smile more, are more relaxed and more motivated. Now there is friendliness without fighting.

First through the football matches, this project created familiarity, what was needed. The local community came together because of this project. Syrians started coming to our community center. We convinced the parents to allow their children to develop their talents in music and art. It created bridges of trust."

Mayor of Menshieh, Mafraq

"I worked with other organizations with bigger budgets and more staff, but we achieved less.”

IAHV staff member

"We are working in an environment that is in dire need of psychosocial activities. I have never seen such an effective stress relief as in this workshop… This will heavily reflect on the type of work that I do, and will allow me to truly benefit the Syrian refugees that I work with.” 

Social worker at Zaatari camp

"Visiting refugees in their homes and shelters, seeing their situation and listening to their stories, is a stressful job. We take the stress home with us. In other self-care workshops there was always something missing. They focused more on cognitive levels and mental health. However, IAHV’s Professional Care workshop addresses this gap, because it is more holistic, touches on more aspects, goes deeper and raises our energy levels. My health and energy levels have improved and I have quit smoking!”

Ahmad, JRS refugee staff for house visits
