It is the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves that shape how we treat ourselves, each other, and our world. #MeWeSyria, a program of #MeWeIntl, leverages communications skills-building and narrative interventions as tools to enhance psychological wellbeing, leadership skills, and community engagement.
The #MeWeSyria program is both a methodology and training network led by Syrians. Refugee facilitation teams, trained by #MeWeIntl, are provided capacity trainings and resources to lead #MeWeSyria hubs in their own communities. The program hubs synthesize neuroeducation, mental health and psychosocial support concepts, and communication skills-building to improve the overall emotion regulation, perspective-taking, and goal-setting capacities of refugee youth and caregivers. The program has reached more than 3,000 refugees across four countries.
#MeWeSyria has partnered with several organizations, including:
- Ford Foundation
- Community Arts Labs
- Wend Ventures
- US State Department
- Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
- Mercy Corps
