Support the Fellowship Program
In early 2014, the Felsman Fellowship program, generously funded by WomenOne, partnered with Save the Children-Jordan and YUVA, a non-profit in Turkey, to allow our Fellows to take part in the response to the Syria crisis. The work of Felsman Fellows on the Syrian crisis is an example of the kinds of partnerships that can be formed between non-profit organizations and the Felsman program to advocate for vulnerable children globally. At the time there were approximately 600,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan and Turkey each (total approx. 1,200,000). From February 2014 to June 2014 our Fellows worked through their respective organizations to learn about the situation of women and girl refugees and work towards providing them with educational opportunities and protective environments. Our two fellows in Turkey were stationed both in Istanbul and Kirikhan and our two fellows in Jordan were stationed in the Za'atari Refugee Camp, just outside of Amman.
