Summary

Help Soma Children rise from the ashes of tragedy to a hopeful tomorrow! Join us under "Bridge to Turkiye Fund" to support the children impacted by the recent mining tragedy in Soma, Turkey. As an organization dedicated to the empowerment of underserved children through education, we feel at this time that it is our responsibility to support the sons and daughters of the perished Soma miners. With your support, we will create an education fund for the children who lost parents in the mines.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

On May 13, 2014 Turkey had its worst-ever mining disaster in Soma, Manisa. More than 300 miners lost their lives due to this awful event and hundreds of miners are still underground... The death toll is expected to increase in the coming days.. Miners who lost their lives in this mining disaster were the main breadwinners for their families. As a result, these families will face challenges to support their children's education. This project will support children to continue with their education.

How will this project solve this problem?

As an organization dedicated to the empowerment of under served children through education, we feel at this time that it is our responsibility to support the sons and daughters of the perished Soma miners. Our project will create an education fund for the children who lost parents in the mines. By working with our partners in Turkey we will transfer monthly scholarships to the children who have lost their fathers and ensure that they will continue with their education.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will ensure that the educational goals of the perished miners' children are fulfilled. The scholarships will provide economic assistance to these young people in creating a better future for themselves, their families and communities, and us all.
