Nousha Kabawat is the Syria Program Officer at the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution. She is also a graduate student at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR). Over the years, Nousha has built an extensive network of activists in Syria, Egypt, and Palestine and has worked closely with them on designing programmatic content for CRDC’s overseas courses. Nousha was the first and only Syrian to participate in Seeds of Peace and is currently in charge of youth involvement at the Syrian Center for Dialogue and Reconciliation in Toronto. She is the founder of Project Amal ou Salam, a CRDC initiative that aims to empower the future leaders of Syria through education, intervention, and trauma-based care. Nousha’s work with refugee populations within and outside of Syria seeks to recover the “lost generation” of Syrian children to facilitate the reconstruction of post-conflict Syria.
