Everyone has a story.

Marwa's Story

Hala's Story

Youssef's Story

Youssef's Story

Nabil's Story

Nabil's Story

Nabil is the youngest of six children who fled Syria with their mother four years ago after their father was killed. He has not yet had the chance to go to school.

You can be part of the story.

The children of Syria and Iraq have the opportunity to re-write the story of their nations. But they can't do this without an education. Will you give these children the opportunity to learn & dream?

Join our campaign.

From March 30 - June 4, 2016, we're raising $75,000 to send refugee children back to school.

Here's how you can help.

Take the #10TeeChallenge

From March 30 – May 10, we’ll be selling “Human Story” T-Shirts! All proceeds go toward sending refugee children back to school. Specifically, we’ll be funding the construction of a third floor of classrooms at our partner school in northern Jordan, building a playground for children attending our partner “tented” schools, and funding school fees, uniforms, supplies, and transportation to send 400 Syrian and Iraqi refugee kids back to school. And you can help!

We’re challenging everyone in our community to sell just 10 T-Shirts among their friends and family. Take the #10TeeChallenge and get started making a difference today!

We’ve compiled this handy digital toolkit with everything you’ll need to launch your campaign — from social media content, to RTM logos, to sample support request letters to send to friends and family. And don’t forget — get your own T-Shirt and wear your support for refugees today!

Start fundraising

One of the biggest ways you can have an impact for refugees is by raising money for the programs that serve them.  And we’ve made it easy! We’ve developed materials you can use in your fundraising, provided suggested fundraising ideas and examples, and even set up this page to enable you to collect donations and track your progress toward your personal campaign goal!

Host a Human Story Event

The conflict in the Middle East is not just political, not just historical, and not just numerical. It’s personal.  We’re committed to sharing the human story behind the news headlines, to introduce you to the real families who are impacted by this conflict. We’ll share their hopes and dreams, their losses and their triumphs. Since our inception, we’ve reached over 2,500 people across the U.S. with the human message of hope the refugees themselves carry.

We speak to diverse age groups in diverse settings, though our primary focus is school and university groups.
