Exciting news: paralegals for Syrian Refugees

George Soros today said that his Open Society Foundations would contribute US$25 million to train up to 1,000 paralegals to be recruited from among the Syrian refugees and their host communities in Jordan and Lebanon. The paralegals would assist refugees to obtain work permits, register births, and otherwise stabilize their lives.

Network members working in this region may want to remain up to date directly with OSF on possibilities for collaboration.
