Who is Sened

Sened is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization established in 2013 and registered in Turkey with No. 27-15-175; It arose in response to the suffering of Syrian refugees in Turkey & internally displaced persons in Syria as a result of the war waged by the Syrian regime on its own people and torn apart the entire country. Sened works through the humanitarian work sectors to empower persons with disabilities, their families, and communities, advocate for their issues, and include their voice in their communities.

Sened Logo Philosophy

In the symbol we relied on the circle. Our choice of it was because it is one of the geometric symbols indicating harmony, harmony, centrality, clarity and neutrality. In its mythological meaning, it means connection, integration and continuity. The circle is the most perfect geometric form from which all shapes appear, and it is a universal symbol that has a place in most beliefs. The circular shape is the most natural among the shapes at all. The circle represents the unity of the planetarium that unites us, and symbolizes dynamism and infinite movement because it has no beginning or end, as it symbolizes the individual, perfection and inner energy, so it was in every part of the logo. To express professionalism, continuity and flexibility in movement and fluidity in dealing and harmony with various situations and the global in the vision.

It is the sun, the earth, the point, and the human being, who is the one we put in the center of our attention and goals, and we seek to be a protective shield to preserve his humanity and dignity, and to be his support in education, advocacy, and equipping him with livelihood skills to be an effective, effective, self-contained product in society. It turns from a point into a sun that reaches its lights all over the world.
