Celebrate Ammar’s life

Spread his enthusiasm for learning and nature with a gift of education for less fortunate youth in conflict zones.

In honor of Ammar’s memory and passion for justice and learning

Ammar’s mother, Rasha Ajalyaqeen Al-Shami and sister Salma Al-Shami create Ammar’s fund to support edSeed students.

Ammar’s fund is a vehicle for fulfilling other young people’s pursuit of a human right: education. Our objective is to fund 6000 refugees and students impacted by conflict.

Work is love made visible says Kahlil Gibran.

This is all that we do at edSeed,  We make our love visible. Behind every student’s campaign, there are countless hours of prodding, extracting, inviting, and engaging. And just like when you present your son or daughter to the world, you want them to look and sound their best.

Your involvement is critical

With your help we’ve helped hundreds of displaced youth gain access to higher education. 

The money you raise will support the education of refugees and youth impacted by conflict. They too deserve a second chance.

Thank you for your support.

Help us keep Ammar’s legacy alive by generously donating to his fund.
