Empower Through Education
Mercy Without Limits is the official sponsor of Aleppo University including the campuses located in the cities of Daraa and Aleppo. The Universities consist of many established departments such as, General Education, Finance, Law, Language, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Theology and Business Administration. Furthermore, two medical schools have been created, one located in the suburbs of Damascus, and the other in Idlib. Currently Mercy Without Limits works on expanding the universities by offering to open up many more programs and departments. The annual administrative costs for all Boards of Education in every province is being supported by Mercy Without Limits which amounts to more than $100,000. We have also partnered up with University of Washington, Columbia University, Eastern Michigan University, University of California Berkeley, and many more offering a scholarship to students through the ‘Books not Bombs’ initiative.
Mercy Without Limits also subsidizes many elementary, middle, and high schools across Syria. We operate a series of informal schools located in rebel controlled areas. Formal schools are not secure enough for children to attend which led to the emergence of informal schools located in underground basements. At Present, Mercy Without Limits has informal schools in cities of Daraa, Al-Ghouta, Hama, Idlib and Aleppo, providing education to over 10,000 students. We use basements of clothing shops and old businesses to provide schooling for children. Aleppo has five basement schools with more than 2000 students attending. With over twenty academic supervisors, we work on managing and further advancing our programs with a special focus on literacy. Through innovative thinking, our team makes use of the minimal spaces and resources within Syria to pave the way for hope and growth.
