Olive Branch launches new initiative to support the education of Syrian children in Hatay

Building on the back of a successful livelihood project in Hatay, Olive Branch is now supporting a new initiative in the same location to improve the educational life of vulnerable children.  In partnership with Basma & Zeitouneh and DOOR organizations, this project targets one school in the Yayladagi district to improve the quality of life for the children by providing school materials and educational items.

The children of Yazuz Salim Ilkokulu school are almost exclusively from Syrian families that are under temporary protection in Turkey.  The goal is to improve the educational life of the children and, thereby, the prospects of closer integration into the host society.  Olive Branch and the partners are supporting the children of this school in cooperation with the District National Education Directorate.  The project will assist every child with school materials and other necessary personal items required for the full school year 2020-2021.
