Initiative summary:

Bousla for Development & Innovation seeks to revive interest in pro-democracy activism among local communities in the northwest of Syria using their network of activists in the region. With EED funding, they are training local change-makers on democracy and human rights principles to help them become democracy, peace and/or human rights ambassadors within their communities through their own activities. In parallel, Bousla aims to contribute to breaking a predominant narrative of victimization by “giving a voice to the current voiceless success stories”, shedding light on local civil activists who positively contribute to the promotion of human rights, peaceful coexistence and democratic principles.
