Education for Syrian Children in Turkey
There are 3.6 million Syrian refugees in Turkey. Before the war, 99% of Syrians had primary education, and 82% had attended lower secondary school. Today, over 2 million Syrian children are out of school, and Syria’s previous record of education has been shattered.
The first revelation of the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) required him to “Read in the name of the Lord… who taught man through the use of pen what he did not know.” (Al-Alaq, 96:1,4,5).
Support our education project in Turkey, and help Syrian children to continue their schooling, despite the violence, trauma and displacement they have witnessed.
It is also a chance to double your impact as, our partner, Reach Out To Asia (ROTA) will match any donations that you provide. Donate today and multiply the benefits for Syrian children, and for yourself this Ramadan.
Education for All
Our schooling project in southern Turkey aims to support, recover and enhance the learning experiences of 20,000 Syrian children in 34 public schools in Osmaniye and Kahramanmaraş. With your help, we will provide computer labs in each of the 34 schools. We will also provide psychosocial support and train 34 counsellors on education in emergencies, so that they are able to understand and help their Syrian students.
As part of this project, we will train 30 staff from the Turkish Ministry of Education, provide materials for extra-curricular clubs, and we will also establish two mobile libraries to support learning, reading and the study of Turkish for both children and adults in the area. Each mobile library will be equipped with magazines, books and e-learning facilities, as well as an internet connection.
Today, a Syrian child under the age of eight will have experienced a life of war, displacement and violence. Help them to recover their childhood, and give them the foundations of a good education this Ramadan and reap the increased reward of charity in the holy month.
“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
