This project aims to strengthen emergency assistance to all Syrians in need, particularly women and girls, through support to the Syrian Civil Defence. The Syrian Civil Defence, also know as the White Helmets, is providing essential life saving emergency assistance to civilians in Syria since the beginning of the war. The project seeks to increase the number of trained women able to work as volunteer emergency responders with the organization. Project activities include: (1) recruiting and training new female volunteers; (2) providing them with basic equipment and a monthly stipend; and (3) providing support for the establishment of emergency service centres in Syrian communities where women can access services from women volunteers.
