Summary: 
The Ramadan program covered youth who were not only socially, financially, economically and culturally disadvantaged and vulnerable due to poverty, but also live in an area severely affected by natural catastrophes. The beneficiaries of the project were youth aged from 14 to 25, living in the Upazilla of Teknaf, one of the most vulnerable areas of Bangladesh.  The overall aim of this project was to provide iftar and sahur to 120 poor youth in ten villages and at the same time provide training on basic disaster preparedness.  The program ran from in Ramadan 2009, and resulted in the increased awareness of disaster risk reduction and preparedness in affected communities.

Environmental Education Initiative for Primary and Secondary Pupils in Syria

Project Id: 
Syria-ENV
Summary: 

ROTA’s main focus in the Syria projects is to introduce formal and non-formal education in sustainable environmental behavior. The targeted populations of this program are students and teachers from primary, secondary, and universities, in the hopes of creating a joint awareness system to instill these morals and values towards the environment.

Syria is considered to be the “Cradle of Civilization,” with Damascus often thought to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.  With a recent influx of Iraqi refugees, the current education system is under extreme pressure.
