When donors think outside the box

Violet is a Syrian organization, which started out in 2011 through a network of young volunteers who felt they had to do something for their communities which were suffering as a result of the conflict in Syria. They started out by providing essential aid to families affected by the conflict on a small scale, and have now grown into an organization working to provide humanitarian aid, implementing projects in six provinces in Syria, as the conflict rages on, now in its seventh year.
