About Us

Our Story 

Everybody has a history. We can repeat it, learn from it or use it to help others. In 2015, Samah was founded upon this principle. Initially, we provided educational programs, aid and support to those in need, locally and abroad.

In 2017, we expanded our scope and incorporated workshops in South Australian high schools. Through Samah, we were able to deliver empowerment workshops to students from grades 9-12. These engaging workshops offered a holistic approach to students’ learning, and covered self-development, relationships with themselves and the world around them.

This year, we opened avenues to support students across other Australian states. Collaborative efforts with other organisations ensure that the same programs are accessible to all those who want to learn across Australia. We also continued our humanitarian efforts and did our best to ease the difficulties of those suffering.

Our Family 

Founder of Samah, Eman Serhan, understands that time and time again we encounter hardships throughout life. She aims to spread care and support to individuals who come from all walks of life.

12 years ago, Eman co-founded Adelaide based business Emali Early Learning Centre. A family-owned childcare that continues to educate and provide safe environments to grow for over 2,500 children. In 2014, Eman diversified her efforts, undertaking volunteering with international organisations delivering aid to young women, mothers and families in refugee camps. This experience solidified the foundation for Samah Projects.

Since then, many helping hands have joined the crew in an effort to leave a positive mark on those around them. Together, we aim to lift people up and support them where they may need it. Without their help, Samah would not be where it is today. The amazing humans who help make the world a better place are none other than:

The Emali Team:
Inspiring children to grow and learn about the world around them.

Human Appeal International:
Providing necessities and aid to families in war-torn, poverty-stricken, drought, famine and disease affected areas around the world.

Energetic and enthusiastic speakers, providing schoolchildren with uplifting workshops and seminars.

Our Middle Eastern based volunteers, headed by Shereen:
Assisting with packaging and distributing necessities to impoverished families in the region.

And all the sponsors and individuals who donated to our events and fundraisers!
