Who We Are

Our name ELNOR, or pronounced as ‘el-nour’ (النور) in Arabic, means the light. We consider this word as a guiding principle of our program as we seek to offer hope, support new beginnings, and promote long-term change for marginalized people.

Education Technology

 Many people living in refugee camps have very limited access to formal modes of education put them at a greater disadvantage as it disconnects them from in-person volunteer tutors while they have limited access to internet and electronic devices to participate in virtual learning programs. Adapting the technology to fit the needs and wifi connectivity of our students, we have been innovating ways that we can connect with refugees and expand our services to reach more people.

The Situation

“At least 79.5 million people around the world have been forced to flee their homes. Among them are nearly 26 million refugees, around half of whom are under the age of 18.

There are also millions of stateless people, who have been denied a nationality and lack access to basic rights such as education, health care, employment and freedom of movement.

At a time when 1 per cent of the world’s population have fled their homes as a result of conflict or persecution” —UNHCR
