The Blossom Hill is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates out of New Canaan, CT. It was founded in 2009 by Shiva Sarram, a former child of war from Iran, who fled Tehran in the early 1980's with her family and came to America where Shiva and Blossom Hill's Board of Directors are committed to investing in social entrepreneurs to help children affected by conflict in the Middle East thrive.
Blossom Hill funds innovative ideas to help children affected by conflict in the Middle East.
A world where conflict-affected children thrive.
We fund programs, projects and 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.
