Donate to the International Institute of St. Louis


Donate NowFerdoos is a survivor, an essential attribute since she has been forced to seek refuge twice. First Ferdoos and her two daughters fled from Iraq to Syria. Then, the tiny family was forced to flee again. Once a vulnerable refugee, Ferdoos is now a proud entrepreneur and soon-to-be US Citizen. Her daughters work and attend community college.

Your donation will make a huge difference by providing life-altering English classes, job training, and counseling. Then, refugees like Ferdoos can find their way quickly and completely. And by learning to help themselves, these newcomers, who become business operators, workers and neighbors, help their adopted city – and country – as well.

So donate now and make a difference. Ferdoos – and all newcomers like Ferdoos --- thank you!
