Dounia Project aims at creating a safe and nurturing space where youth from different urban areas around the world can participate in a set of extracurricular activities during school and non-school hours, which will allow them to develop the necessary skills to compete in an increasingly globalized world. DP's overall goal is to create a global network of programs where young people can interconnect with each other, exchange their ideas and find ways to make their world a better place.
Dounia Project was envisioned and created in 2009 by four professionals with diverse backgrounds. They met while pursuing their master’s degree in International Affairs at the New School in New York City. They share a passion for social global justice and believe that innovative education leads to the reduction of global socio-economic inequalities and the promotion of peace and tolerance. These founders are the current Board of Directors of Dounia Project and contribute their experience towards the execution of the organization’s mission.
