Funding Decision – Trustees Meeting 13.06.18

On 13 June the Trustees of A Village in Syria held a routine meeting. After looking at various options, including temporary learning spaces / pop-up schools and recreational activities

it was agreed that A Village in Syria would continue to fund Firefly International. The reasons for this decision included:

  • The track-record of Firefly in Antakya, Turkey plus the fact we fact we had been able to visit their main project, twice in 2017
  • Their gradual expansion into satellite operations, in Turkey
  • Their development of curriculum development and teaching materials, now in use in both Turkey and Syria
  • Their modest operational costs
  • Their legal compliance with UK charity law. It is difficult for us to fund operations which are only registered in Turkey (or Syria)
