About Habesha Project
Habesha Project is a humanitarian civil society initiative that was established in 2015 as a response to the greatest displacement crisis of our time; that caused by the armed conflict in Syria.
Since that time, Habesha Project’s objective has been to make it possible for young Syrians whose studies were interrupted by the conflict to continue their university education in Mexico. To do that, we created a comprehensive model through which we select at-risk young Syrians, obtain a visa for them, validate their academic qualifications, finance theirtravel to Mexico, and cover their accomodation and living costs during their studies inthe country. Also, thanks to our network of partner universities located across Mexico,our students study for their bachelor’s or master’s degrees on full scholarships.
After years of gaining experience and refining our model, Habesha Project saw the need to look beyond the Syrian crisis, and begin tackling the displacement crisis taking place globally by offering higher education opportunities to young refugees from around the world.
