About us

Who we are

Sahem Association

– Sahem Association is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to uniting efforts for common social and developmental goals, aiming to advance and invest in the well-being of society and individuals. 

– We support projects in an endowment capacity, which means that if we achieve profits as a partner in the project, we reinvest it either in the same project or in other non-profit projects.

– We are a licensed association based in Bavaria, Germany. After obtaining approval of our association’s goals by the Fürth City Court, we received approval from the Tax Agency (Finanzamt) to exempt donors from taxes for the charity of our project.

– We believe that Sahem Association grows with your belief in it and your contributions. It is an ongoing charity that relies on your support for sustainable projects.

What are our goals

Why was Sahem Association established?

Over the past years our region has gone through unusual circumstances, many people have taken refuge in refugee camps that lack the basic necessities of life, such as infrastructure, hospitals, health and education.There was an urgent need to support our displaced brothers and sisters in the refugee camps, who were forced to leave their homes and properties. With the continued deterioration of living conditions, relief work has turned into a huge burden that drains money and consumes large resources, even from major charities, without actually improving the conditions of aid recipients.

Our vision

We respect and value relief work, but we want to focus on supporting non-profit projects in society, even though it is challenging and takes time. We believe that this is the real solution that changes the situation of individuals and families from passive recipients to positive actors in society.

Our goals

We aim to support development, social or educational projects that need financial assistance, whether they are existing but facing financial difficulties or stalled due to lack of funds.We partner with some of these projects and help them to revive and sustain themselves, as their success means more jobs and opportunities for people.If these projects generate profits, we reinvest them in the same project or in other projects that need support.

Short stories about the current work of Sahem Charity

Establishment of a retail store
Before the launch of the Sahem Association, we supported a retail store project that started with three people with a capital of 10,000 dollars, then expanded to reach five people and then seven people. This project is still standing, thanks to God, retaining its capital and profits, which return to be pumped into the same project for its development and expansion to achieve the project’s goal. The capital amounted to 10,000 dollars in the event that it was allocated to seven families on a relief basis for a period of two years, so that it would be consumed. With the support of this project, we kept the capital that we are developing and expanding, thanks to God, and we were able to employ seven people (subsidizing seven families). It is this type of project that reduces the pressure on relief organizations, yes, slowly but sustainably, God willing.
Al-Sham Model School

During the founding of the Sahem Association, we communicated with some educational initiatives and some schools that need support to continue the educational process, so we decided upon the launch of the association to focus on education because it supports the educational system in those affected areas and the support and teaching staff that suffer from scarcity of resources, and because it achieves a goal Noble in combating ignorance, raising and educating children, and giving them one of their most basic rights, so that they may be an asset for us in the face of future days, immune from the ideas of extremism that surround them, for extremism is the companion of ignorance.
This project includes, in addition to supporting schools, sponsorship of students from the primary stages until graduation, as will be explained in the profiles.

Uninhabitable houses restoration project

After the tangible impact achieved by a campaign to restore uninhabitable houses in northern Syria through and supervision of the young doctor Ahmed Al-Lababidi and a group of philanthropists, Sahem decided to work alongside this good initiative that changed and improved the general condition of many affected families with small amounts.
We have chosen an aspect that is compatible with the available financial mass, compared to achieving a good, clear, rapid, and sustainable impact on people’s lives, which is contributing to the restoration and cladding of homes and providing them with basics such as doors, windows, toilets, and water tanks, as these supplies greatly affect achieving what can be achieved in terms of protection, warmth, privacy, dignity, and contributing to the transition The residents of these unequipped or empty homes, as a step towards a better life and prompted them to think about completing the shortcomings, as a result of the usual assistance mechanisms provided generally prevailed in the mentality of need, destitution, suffering, despair, helplessness, and the lack of feeling the need to improve the personal, family and collective reality.
