Tony Hoffman is a lecturer in child development at UCSC and at the American University of Beirut (AUB). He teaches courses on war-affected children and children protection in extreme circumstances. He has been promoting and supervising psychosocial programs for Syrian refugee children in Lebanon since 2014.

This presentation raises awareness about the needs of the great majority of children affected by the Syrian crisis, who live as refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, and Syria. It also introduces the work of effective, small, and local NGOs like the Kayany Foundation, a Syrian-Lebanese organization that is providing quality services for children in an environment of desperation, political obstacles, and corruption.
