Our Mission

One World, One People, One Mission – World Peace

For The Unseen is a non-profit that creates innovative, self-sustaining projects to improve the lives of people in vulnerable communities the world over. We focus exclusively on “the unseen,” i.e., people whose lives have been negatively affected by conflict, neglect, or corruption.

For The Unseen works to improve the lives of the "unseen" in our world, that is, those affected by conflict, neglect, or corruption. Our purpose is two-fold: Seeing and sustaining.

In 2013, For The Unseen partnered with local operatives to start the Birds of Hope school for Syrian children. They started with 350 students and today, they have over 3,000 students and a staff of nearly 70. Their success is inspiring, but the school runs chiefly thanks to outside support - which is where For The Unseen comes in.
