What is the Wisdom House
In 2016, communities in the U.S. learned about five teachers caring for over 100 children in an underground space and committed to sustain this school for years to come.
The Wisdom House Kindergarten provides education to 3-6 year olds in northwest Syria. The resilient children and teachers have been displaced multiple times due to bombardment by the Syrian regime and now located in the northern Aleppo countryside.
Sponsor a Kindergarten student for $25/ month and make a difference for a child in Syria.
*The cost of educating one child is approximately $300 per year. There are around 500 children in the village, and we currently have the capacity to educate 120 students.

Hear from a Teacher
“When I teach the kids I always try to have activities, things that will keep them focused on their studies. I try to make their homework and their courses like a game so they are completely absorbed by what we are working on and can be distracted from the war. For example, whenever we are studying a specific letter from the alphabet I will write the letter with a specific color and color the letter on a balloon. Then one of the students will go up and pop the balloon and the letter falls out of it. I do what I can to try to give them normal days that take them away from the war that we live in.”
