OUR DEBUT PROJECT
Learn more about The Adventures of Laila and Ahmed
The core of Beauty Beneath the Rubble is the children’s book series The Adventures of Laila and Ahmed.
The first book takes place in Syria, and follows the adventures of two children through the cities and sites of pre-war Syria. Illustrated by a Syrian oil painter, the book showcases a different side of the country. Like many places facing war and conflict, Syria has a long and rich heritage, and has been home to several civilizations. Laila and Ahmed’s journey brings this history to the forefront in all of its beauty and complexity.
Our readers will decide where Laila and Ahmed’s next adventure takes place, selecting another conflict-stricken country to explore, treasure, and share.
As a registered 501(c)(3), all proceeds from our books will be used toward creating additional educational materials and supporting displaced refugees.
