The Qudra Programme works with refugees, displaced persons and host communities in four countries bordering Syria: Jordan, Lebanon, North Iraq and Turkey. Roughly 80-90% of Syrian refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in these countries are living out-of-camp, and their circumstances and status vary considerably. Qudra aims to build the resilience of host communities, refugees and displaced persons in five key areas: SO1 - Education Infrastructure, SO2 - Skills Development, SO3 - Social Cohesion, SO4 - Supporting Local Administrations and SO5 - Facilitating Dialogue and Dissemination.
