Champion School was developed from a program initiated to help the street child in Syria. As a team, we believe every child has a right to quality education for personal and professional development regardless of birthplace, gender, ethnicity, or religion. Together, we believe a better future rests in them.
Champion School provides growing tools and structural support to children aging from 9 to 13 years old who reside in fragile communities with risks such as gang violence, severe bullying, drug addiction in Syria.
Champion School incorporates football (soccer) training with innovative learning platforms for personal development, and community building. We offer free and specially customized curricula such as public speakng, reading therapy, and creative theatrical performance. Our goal is not only to help those children learn about mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation between different groups, but enable them to apply those skills to build their own communities for future generations.
Champion school is created, designed, and supported by local communities in Latakia, Syria, including the families of our students and other partnered organizations, Embedded in neighborhoods, we work closely with families of our students and help connect and mobilize the community resources to provide most needed academic education and life-skill training to our students.
Champion School has been closely monitoring COVID19 development on the ground in Syria and adjusting our courses and programs accordingly. However, we have also noticed significantly unequal impact on our female students and have been taking actions to counter this effect, including case by case follow-up. We will announce our re-openning and are looking forward to welcoming our students back to our physical classes next year!
Please note: Football training remains open till notified otherwise.
