Welcome to AZAHAR Connects, our means to keep you close and informed about the impact that is possible because of you, our supporters. Our foundation represents the collective desire for peace, tolerance, and healing. We have thus, designed platforms and programs to materialize this dream with communities that have the greatest potential for transformation.
AZAHAR Foundation works internationally because we live in a global society that can be engaged to support common goals. Our work initiated since 2009 and has gradually become more organized throughout the subsequent years. AZAHAR Foundation is growing, and we wish to share with you our exciting endeavors, as we continue to reflect, learn and evolve. Our Retrospective Report presents a snapshot of our work for the past 10+ years and some perspectives for the future.
As a global society we have also become resilient in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. After having to streamline operations during the past couple of years, we’re now launching new initiatives and reactivating many of our programs and partnerships.
I joined AZAHAR Foundation as CEO since December, 2021 after working as an international organizational development advisor and change facilitator for more than 18 years. Since then, I’ve embarked on a learning journey about what makes our work unique and I believe that the key word is connection. I’ve assessed that our mission echoes the interest and desires of a global society that is constantly seeking personal growth and linkage with social consciousness. During the present time, human beings increasingly seek individual healing, yet this quest is not detached from our relationship with others. Alternatively, non-conventional social development practices, such as yoga, meditation and the arts have permeated our societal conversations as we strive to dissect them through practice. AZAHAR Foundation is the link between a global community of people who are on an individual healing quest and significant societal causes that require a similar approach.
I hope that you enjoy learning about our work through our bimonthly newsletter and that we’re able to partner together in promoting a culture of peace.
