The Awareness Foundation was founded in 2003 by The Revd Nadim Nassar. The Foundation, a registered charity in England & Wales (No 1099873), is an international humanitarian charity driven by Christian values which builds peace through education and training. Our two core programmes, LITTLE HEROES, AMBASSADORS FOR PEACE, and PAX aim to equip and empower children and young people in Syria and Iraq to become agents of peace and reconciliation.
Empowering people of faith to embrace diversity and build peaceful and harmonious communities.
We want to equip Christians everywhere to form an effective counter force to the intolerance and mistrust that now prevail in so many communities, and to build understanding between the faiths.
Our objectives are:
To give children in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon meaningful skills and tools, both spiritual and practical, to regain hope and build better futures for themselves and their families.
Through our programs in the region, we also empower children and young people in Syria and Iraq to promote peace and reconciliation; build partnerships between people of different faiths and different religious denominations; enable people to live generous, hospitable and peaceful lives and to promote peace and reconciliation; and build bridges of understanding between the West and the Middle East.
Deepening faith, building peace, living and demonstrating God’s generous love.
“But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defence to anyone who demands from you an account of the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and reverence.” (1 Peter 3:15-16a)
