Kesh Malek Organization

A group of youth that shared a common belief in the revolution of justice, freedom, and dignity and came together with the beginning of the Syrian revolution in March 2011. The group has worked, since the beginning, on the mobilization of protests and advocacy for the revolutionary values in the city of Aleppo in the north of Syria. The group called itself “Kesh Malek: Checkmate” to resemble removing the king that inherited the rule in Syria “to Get the Syrian Republic Back”. Kesh Malek has engaged in the distribution of under-ground-awareness flyers and calls for protests, in addition to organizing advocacy campaigns that held political and revolutionary significance along with the present events.
In 2012, Kesh Malek moved to the eastern side of Aleppo after the liberation, where many activities were organized in partnership with the civil society that mainly focused on children.
In 2014, Kesh Malek opened an office in Gaziantep-Turkey, and obtained a license as a Syrian civil society organization, stepping toward expanding and organizing its work.
In Kesh Malek, we believe that the Syrian revolution is the only mean of real change in Syria, in order to shift the state from a totalitarian regime and into a democratic state with no place for tyranny; A state that respects the rights of its citizens and establishes freedom and justice.

Kesh Malek believes in the Syrians’ right in freedom, dignity, and justice and that the Syrian revolution is the most important tool to fight the Syrian regime dictatorship and combating extremism. Proceeding from this belief, Kesh Malek works with the Syrians to encourage them and push to actively participate in building their society and affiliate in public affairs.
Kesh Malek also works on establishing cultural and social spaces focuses on the Syrian national identity and the political, cultural, and social rights.
