HOW WE WORK
In order for Mobadeeroon to be able to achieve the desired impact (contribution in the support of peaceful coexistence)
First, intervention patterns (work strategy):
In order for Mobadeeroon to be able to achieve the desired impact (contribution in the support of peaceful coexistence) and to guarantee their work results, Mobadeeroon relies on five main strategies, each of which includes several supporting sub-strategies:
Program development through the following:
- This strategy is considered the biggest in Mobaderoon and the main resource for the rest of strategies. Programs development is the methodology that ensures the adequacy of the programs to the community by test, feedback and improvement, it also produces knowledge tools promoted by Mobadeeron in the community, manifested in training tools and major interventions that apply the rest of strategies.
Networking and partnership:
- To create better cooperation with other associations, and from its belief in being a part of a whole, Mobadeeroon seeks partnerships with other associations to achieve maximum impact.
- Networking with individuals, associations and communities creates qualitative common spaces to support resource sharing and knowledge exchange, and to meet the needs and expectations of the communities. Networking also results in projects or activities by sharing resources, knowledge and expertise to develop and implement new programs, adequate to the needs of the community, based on common qualitative spaces and partners.
Facilitation and exchange of knowledge:
- Mobadeeroon aims to stimulate a new work methodology in the community that further highlights resource sharing and knowledge exchange through dialogue and understanding. This strategy relies on feedback and knowledge exchange between different communities, it reflects the internal work mechanisms of Mobaderoon and its strategic and operational planning. Facilitation strategy is also adopted in most of the previous strategies.
- This strategy is considered an adopted means to spread knowledge that results from Mobadeeroon’s programs and its development methodology.
Active social projects:
- Believing that actions speak louder than words, Mobadeeroon works on motivating individuals to launch and implement active social projects so that participants can invest tools and knowledge that Mobadeeroon promotes, and social leaders can take on active roles in the community in a system of values. Mobadeeron supports these projects as part of its contribution in peaceful coexistence as well.
- Providing technical consultancy to social project teams before and after implementation.
Capacity building for individuals and associations:
- Mobadeeroon believes in an active and organized civil society that requires individuals’ capacity to take on active roles in a system of shared values, by using dialogue channels that lead them to understand the reality of their communities and its needs, and to launch projects that meet these needs. That is why it works on building the capacities of individuals and associations and on providing technical consultancy needed to create opportunities in different communities.
Based on the aforementioned strategies and on the responsibility of Mobaderoon towards its members, partners and community, Mobadeeroon seeks to achieve the following results:
- Active role for youth in social work based on common valuable regulations.
- Activate and organize groups in the civil society
- Safe dialogue environments that contribute in deepening the concept of citizenship and peace.
Mobadeeroon believes in a set of values that resulted from the interaction with activists in social and development work. These values are shared in exchanging their expertise and resources, and have constantly reinforced the association’s efficiency under circumstances that Syria has been and still is going through:
- Reinforcing the values starting from one’s self and the sense of belonging, to the social surrounding and its associations, as citizens who have rights and responsibilities. By promoting and applying the principles of citizenship, social leadership and peace-building with a focus on the belief in every initiator’s creativity and ability to invest opportunities to interact with everyone and to improve the quality of life supported by initiation and competencies to commit to these values and principles.

- Diverse learning and Collective achievement, respecting the freedom of others is considered one of the main agents of success, through respecting positive values and common principles, regardless of any political, religious or ethnic affiliation. This contributes in building a safe interaction platform based on trust and mutual understanding of their identities, where everyone interacts depending on their knowledge, expertise and mutual achievement to face local challenges, guaranteeing their ownership of their intellectual and social work and national impact.
