With the contribution of Soroptimist clubs in Germany, Norway, Kuwait, Belgium, UK and France, in addition to the eighty Dutch clubs, the project has now raised over €345.000.
Margit van Hoeve explains: “Funds have gone towards rucksacks for over 2500 children, and towards teacher’s incentives for over 10,000 teachers, many of whom have themselves fled from Syria; 6,400 of which are women. In the province of Kahraman Maras, €115.000was spent on furnishing fifteen schools, and with our latest contribution €138.000,UNICEF Turkey has been able to upgrade and convert existing tented classrooms into six container classrooms in the Akçakale Camp, Şanlıurfa Province”. Currently in the final stages of completion, the container classrooms are set to start receiving students in July. By placing the container classrooms, the support of the Soroptimists has directly contributed to creating physical school spaces, as initially intended by the school construction.
