Mohammad Al-Nashash, 24 Balqa


Designed and launched to solve a significant problem, Athar addresses the disconnect between underprivileged youth, namely refugees and orphans, from their surrounding society and community. By creating online communities of like-minded youth, regardless of their origins, Mohammad hopes to foster a culture of acceptance, tolerance, and peace among Athar subscribers through the shared content and experience it provides. Athar also organizes offline activities, using sports, culture, and art in an effort to connect participants in real life around shared interests. Athar’s ultimate goal is to create a more unified society, where open-mindedness and inclusivity are hallmarks of engaged youth and their communities.
