DESCRIPTION

The Habesha Project is a neutral, not-for-profit, non-political, and non-faith based international Mexican-led humanitarian initiative aimed at sending a message of solidarity to the Syrian nation. It does so by making it possible for Syrian students, who have fled the conflict, to travel to Mexico to pursue higher education. In association with leading academic institutions, the Project will foster discussion designed to increase awareness about the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East, as well as regional and global implications of the conflict. The Habesha Project echoes Mexico’s historic tradition of its people in international solidarity and promotion of peace among nations. Moreover, this initiative builds on the trust of the international community, put into the Mexican Government to play a positive role as participant to the Geneva II Peace Conference. The Habesha Project proposes a model that views Syrian students as an asset and opportunity to promote an intercultural dialogue that fosters an international culture of peace. Furthermore, this initiative seeks to support and exploit the diversity of experience to build cultural understanding among beneficiaries, the Mexican nation, and the world. The Project views this diversity as a key asset and critical inspiration for long-term development in Syria and Mexico.

We are building a bridge of solidarity between Syria and Mexico so that 30 Syrian students can travel to Mexico to complete higher education
PROJECT'S COMPONENTS
ANALYSIS AND AWARENESS COMPONENT

Through a pre-designed research program participating academic institutions will provide relevant actors and the general public, with the information required to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the Syrian crisis and the urgency for action. The analysis and awareness component will be implemented by leading Mexican universities and institutes.

DISSEMINATION COMPONENT

The dissemination component aims to build support for the reception of the Syrian students by further disseminating domestically and internationally the findings of the participating academic institutions and other actors associated with the Project.

RECEPTION COMPONENT

The reception component is comprised of all aspects related to the selection, travel, academic placement and stay of the 30 Syrians students in Mexico. The reception component includes an intensive Spanish language training and cultural orientation in the central state of Aguascalientes.

All students will receive full scholarships in some of the most prestigious Mexican universities, health insurance and a monthly stipend
INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE
AND PEACE CULTURE

According to UNESCO, “cultural diversity has emerged as a key concern at the turn of a new century.” Cultural diversity is often viewed as a positive national trait, yet in many modern nations, it is often a source of conflict as well. UNESCO has identified raising cultural awareness and understanding culture in the context of diverse nations as key to global peace.

In this line, the Habesha Project adopts UNESCO's view and seeks to support and exploit the diversity of experience to build cultural understanding among beneficiaries, the Mexican nation, and the world. The Project views this diversity as a key project asset and critical inspiration for long-term development in Syria.
