In collaboration with Work-Based Learning Association, Sawa Association for Development and Aid organized on March 10 a marathon in Qob Elias under the motive, ‘We walk for equality’. Around 1,500 participants from schools and refugee camps joined after having participated in the “Sawa to promote gender equality” initiative. The aim of the activity, according to Sawa president, Nawal Mdalalli, is to increase awareness among students, women and men on human rights and to reduce violence against women and girls in society. The director of the program, head of Work-Based Learning, Yassir Faraj, pointed out that sports and social networking have proven to be a successful tool in curbing violence, particularly inside Syrian refugee camps, stressing that exercise contributes to promoting positive human values.
