Within the framework of its activities, Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization largely focuses on the active involvement in the civic life of the Syrian youth residing in Armenia.

During its operation, the organization has launched a number of initiatives, which served as a platform for identifying the potential of the Syrian youth in active participation in civil society and their self-realization.

The workshop was an initiative of Aleppo CCO and was conducted within the US Embassy funded program of “Syrian-Armenian youth for a better future in Armenia” The workshop was conducted by Sarkis Balkhian, the Executive Board Member, Director of Advocacy and Foreign Affairs of Aleppo CCO in the United States, and Saghatel Bassil, a political specialist.

Approximately sixty Syrian-Armenians participated in the workshop who were introduced with the principles and gained valuable knowledge on the basics of human rights.
