GW work in Syria started in the late ‘90 through visits of GW Lebanon. Using theatre and later camps and training. In August 2008 they organized the first Syrian children and youth leaders training near Damascus, which involved facilitators from all over Syria besides the Lebanese team and international facilitators. From then, Syrian facilitators progressively took over and started their own theatre ministry as well as organized camps and clubs. Since 2012 GW Syria is developing children ministry in partnership with local churches of all denominations in the 5 main regions of the country.
Syria has been ravaged by civil war since 2011.
