About Shafak

Who we are?

Shafak was founded during the early months of the Syrian Crisis in 2011, and by 2013 it was officially established as a formal NGO (Non-Governmental Organization). At its core, Shafak is a grassroots NGO that was formed by Syrians for Syrians, with the intent of addressing the needs of their life with dignity, equality and humanity with a focus on sustainability and autonomy.
Shafak is an impartial, independent, non-profit NGO that exists for the express purpose of providing humanitarian services to vulnerable people regardless of political or religious affiliations and on the long run to contribute to recover and rebuild the society on freedom, justice and equality basis.

More About Us

Structure
Shafak headquarters is currently based in Turkey, with additional branch offices in Amman, Jordan and various Governates inside of Syria.
Under direction from upper management, each country director works alongside his or her team in order to engage with relevant local and international partners and implement projects that are within Shafak capacity.
Expansion
With the Syrian conflict showing few signs of abating in the near future, it is clear that Shafak must expand its outreach as the number of refugees and displaced persons continues to grow. In response, Shafak seeks to continue building sustainable programs in both Syria and the regional countries affected by the crisis. With an additional Branch office currently under development in Lebanon, Shafak hopes to further expand its capacity to address the needs of disenfranchised Syrians.
