FELLOWS

Fellows are the hands and feet of The Philos Project. Each one is a Middle Eastern activist who represents a distinctive community, tradition, or perspective, and together they symbolize the likeminded friends (Greek, philoi) that Philos supports in the region. In addition to telling their unique stories, all Philos fellows oversee special projects that promote leadership and friendship between peoples.

From Coptic to Evangelical Christian communities in the Middle East, our fellows advocate for the persecuted Christian minorities of the Middle East. 

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
