We fund programs, projects or products that aim to positively impact the lives of communities (children, youth, families, etc.) affected by conflict and war in the Middle East.
Refugee children live under unusual and difficult conditions with little or no access to technology that can improve their lives. With our innovative programs, we are reaching a wide range of children with groundbreaking technology that teach them literacy skills and improve their access to higher education.
Millions of refugee children are missing out on an education. Without an opportunity to learn, they risk becoming a lost generation with little chance for a better future. Through sustainable programs, our Fellows are working to ensure refugees can learn and develop the skills they need to succeed in life.
The development of the "whole child" from early childhood through adolescence is critical to long-term development and success of all children. Blossom Hill is committed to providing innovative initiatives for refugee children that will not only prepare them for learning and academic success, but empower them with life skills as they continue to live under difficult conditions.
For refugee youth whose education has been interrupted and ability to earn a livelihood undermined by war and conflict, the future is bleak. We are dedicated to empowering these youth to break from the cycle of poverty by offering innovative vocational training in computer skills, business entrepreneurship and language instruction.
Blossom Hill seeks passionate, committed individuals with innovative ideas about how to improve the lives of war-affected children from the Middle East.
A Fiscal sponsor must be a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Fiscal sponsors will be required to agree to manage and disburse funds to the Fellow according to the terms of the project.
Mark your calendars! Blossom Hill's Annual Farm to Fork Dinner will be held on Friday, September 20, 2024 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm at the Country Club in Darien, CT. We will share additional details on our guest speakers and program at a future date.READ MORE
Meet Nazia, 15, who moved from northern Afghanistan to Kabul with her family seeking opportunity. With 7 family members and limited income, life was incredibly difficult. To gain livelihood skills, Nazia enrolled in our Literacy and Tailoring program.
Through the program, Nazia not only improved her reading, writing and sewing abilities - she found community. She shares: “I want to help support my family with these skills after I graduate in 2 months. My goal is to open a home business, help my siblings with school, and give back however I can.” Nazia is eager to start this new chapter. She beams, “This program is outstanding...we learned so much, made friends, and built a community.”
Stories like Nazia's inspire us to empower more young women with pathways to literacy and livelihoods. With dedication and opportunity, they can uplift themselves and their families.READ MORE
