As a partner organization , The Kota Alliance collaborates with The Amal Alliance. Kota works for gender equality and women's empowerment, and supports in particular nonprofits founded by women. Danielle has succeeded in identifying a niche - traumatized children around the world - and concrete methods to help them by training local providers. Congrats to Danielle and her coworkers for an amazing job and wishing you success in expanding this program to more needy populations.

I have been a board member of Amal for a little over a year. For an organization so young, it has made tremendous progress and the founder deserves special praise. I am yet to come across a not for profit which is so structured, organized and has taken such rapid strides in such a short amount of time. Amal is a mission-driven force which is taking a holistic approach to empowering displaced children employing the incontrovertible but oft neglected mind-body holistic approach to healing and development.

I saw how the Amal Alliance program was started, the idea behind it to bring peace, understanding and opportunity to misplace children in refugee camps; focusing on the children to ensure a better future for them will always bring peace; that’s the amazing concept from Amal Alliance that got me to be a follower and supporter of the vision.

The passion that the team has toward ensuring they fulfill the expectations is second to none and will always open new doors to greater expectations.

Proud to know the amazing team

Elpida Home and Amal Alliance Inc are partners in delivering the Rainbow of Education program to refugees in Thessaloniki, Greece from our community center since 2018. We love having them as our partners, not only because we share the same values but because working with them is a pure delight! Nothing but the best to say about this organization.

The organization of Amal Alliance is constantly striving to ensure the quality of its programs. This is done by looking for good solutions in every context and maintaining dialogue with other professionals. In this way, good experiences of other organizations and new innovations can be brought in and the program develops organically with the well-being of the children always in the center.

Danielle de la Fuente leads AMAL Alliance with inspiration, knowhow and optimism. She networks with skill and confidence at international, national and local levels to engage partners and share tools and knowledge to meet the educational and socio-emotional needs of the increasing number of refugee children.
One of the most impressive strategies of the initiatives in Greece, Lebanon and Turkey is the effort to create programs that are culturally competent, address trauma, and developmentally appropriate, while keeping in mind that forcibly displaced children may be on a different developmental trajectory, in some areas, in respect to their peers.
Another strong strategy is flexibility - in terms of modifying curriculum based on feedback from the children, teacher and parents/caregivers.
Resilient refugee youth are among those who were cared for and had educational opportunities in early childhood. This is what Danielle and her team are working to accomplish for the youngest refugees.
It is a pleasure collaborating with Danielle on advocacy for Early Childhood Development.
Best wishes for continued success!

Amal Alliance, Inc. is one of our grantees who we funded in 2017 for their work, which empowers displaced youth through alternative education and social development programs at refugee camps all around the globe. The report we received from Amal Alliance is "...one of the best reports we have received!"

As a result of our seed funding they were able to serve 400 children and gain a myriad of media attention through varying speaking engagements. Because the refugee crisis is incredibly challenging - and horrific - one might think that the project leads would be overwhelmed and distraught. Amal Alliance stands in the face of hardship and leads opportunities for those who find themselves at the crux of it all.

Amal Alliance is our superhero.
