About us

Tastakel is a non-profit women led organization that was founded in 2015. It is officially registered in Geneva & Turkey. Tastakel was founded by a group of diverse Syrian women who began work towards building a democratic society on the basis of respect, justice & rule of law. The organization aims to foster the values of equality, interfaith and human rights. We are committed to all Syrians throughout the country.  


About us

We are a group of Syrian women who believe in the power of thought and dialogue to induce change. We look forward to Syria’s transition from dictatorship and tyranny to the values of freedom, justice, rule of law, as well as equality and solidarity.

We believe that education, peacebuilding and women’s empowerment fortify our societies and put them on the path to recovery and prosperity. We also believe that plurality and diversity, if harnessed in their proper context, become a source of strength. We are convinced that Syrians possess the resources and capabilities to explore new horizons and to build a nation where all citizens live in dignity and security and enjoy equal opportunities and create a different future.


We are dedicated to serving Syrian society with a focus on creating a culture that reflects its rich and diverse communities with attention to a holistic recovery in Syria including ecological aspects. We believe that education, equality and inclusion will lead to a recovery process, because they are the real stakeholders in society. We aim to achieve this through interfaith dialogue, raising political awareness, and empowering Syrians with the skills of conflict resolution and peace building. We believe engaging women and youth as agents of change will positively contribute towards creating a truly diverse and vital democratic governance. Women and youth stand to be the main beneficiaries, which positions them to be the cornerstone of sustainable peace.
