In Syria, CRDC has a decade long history of engagement and remains regionally operational through a network of experts, alumni, and trainees who are well prepared to carefully increase support for targets of opportunity in non-violent civilian intervention.
CRDC has successfully reached hundreds of Syrian children through Project Amal Ou-Salam. The camp for children includes sports, arts and crafts, recreational activities, as well as peace and trust building activities. Each year, CRDC overseas student seminars actively engage work with Syrian children as part of its practice and educational program.
