MiT Solve partnership + VICE Impact!

Lot’s been going on since #MeWeSyria won Solve MiT at the United Nations in May.

Here is the scoop:

After winning for our pitch on #MeWeSyria at Solve MiT at the United Nations, we presented to partners and allies at MiT. In our presentations we highlighted how our unique methodology leverages the process of storytelling/inter-personal communications    as a tool for mental health/psychosocial support, social/emotional learning, and community-building.

Back in March, #MeWeSyria was officially recognized at the United Nations as a ‘Solver’ by Solve’s MiT, an initiative founded by MiT’s president.

In the coming days, we will be at MiT as a featured ‘Solver’ to present further on our impact and share our needs for scaling and growing upon our refugee-led successes. We are excited to collaborate with potential funders, engineers, neuroscientists, and companies.

Our main needs at the moment are…

Funding | Purpose: We need a strong backend to keep powering-up our methodology and network. We first want to tune up our existing MeWeSyria network in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan then scale up to more cities in these countries and add on new countries such as Germany, France, Brazil, and Canada. This would require more master facilitators to run our innovative training of trainers sessions with refugee teams, more equipment, capacity-building sessions with our refugee replicators, and refinement of the pedagogy and curriculum.

Technical support | Purpose: Build a flexible, virtual team of clinical psychologists, neuroscientists, app developers, translators, curriculum developers, multi media specialists who would help us build a holistic program yielding long term results for youth.

What we know

Over the past several years, we know have a methodology powering up a brave network Syrian refugee youth influencers across 3 countries.

Our recently deployed psychometric scale is showing the behavioral growth our program sparks in young refugees completing our program:
