Masarat Initiative was founded based on our firm belief that knowledge is the key to success in life for individuals and to the prosperity of societies and that learning is a lifelong, ongoing process.
Masarat was launched as a voluntary
educational non-profit initiative with the aim of making knowledge accessible to learners anywhere (with a focus on war-zone areas).
We, in Masarat, are fully aware of the importance of providing equal learning opportunities and of the
major influence education imposes in advancing the creativity of individuals in a way that enables them to build a better future for themselves and the societies they are part of.
To introduce a new concept of
limitless education by making
knowledge accessible to anyone,
anytime and anywhere around the
world for free.

through to continuous career development. With Masarat, we work hard to provide the learners with essential tools, materials and high-end technology to support their learning experience and ensure they have access to knowledge regardless of their geographical location. We aim to increase the learners’ level of knowledge, skills and professionalism to the highest so they can contribute toward re-building the community.
