Meet Zakaria, an 18-year-old Syrian student and a refugee in Turkey. He finished his secondary education with an incredible score of 99.95%. He craves to study in Medicine College in the next year. In order to apply for the college he wants, he needs to perform the SAT exam.
But SAT exam costs money, money he can't afford, unless it was you who donated for this project. Thanks to you, we could able to pay for his exam fee.
Thanks to you, he has a chance to pursue his dreams!
Meet Eibah, a 20-year-old refugee in Turkey who born in Damascus. After the conflict had reached him and his family, they needed to move to a safer place. One of the biggest dreams of Eibah was to continue school, so he persuaded his family to move to Turkey.

You helped Muhammed to pursue his dream!
By SGDD - ASAM - Project Leader
Muhammed had to flee to Turkey because of the war in Syria with his big brother. They had to leave their whole family behind. They are both living with one of their friends right now.
Muhammed needed Turkish lessons in order to become a nurse, so he started to work. He had to work overtime and without insurance, all he was thinking someday he will be a nurse and provide for his family. But things didn’t go well as he planned. Not only they didn’t pay for his work, they also beat him.
When he arrived to our Center with his medical report of the beating, we provided Legal Support to him in order to deal with this issue legally. He shared his story with us and asked for help to pay for his Turkish Course.
With your donations we paid for his Turkish Course! Right now, Muhammed is waiting impatiently to finish his language course and go to the College for Nursery!
We couln’t help Muhammed to pursue his dream of becoming a nurse without your help.
Thank you so much for your donations.

A Story of Success
By SGDD - ASAM - Project Leader
Ragad with her certificate of achievement
Ragad, 15-year-old girl from Haleppo, has been forced to leave her hometown and come to Ankara 2 years ago. Although all the conflicts she and her family has to deal with including waiting in the border for 5 days, she is full of life. She attented a 2-year Turkish learning course, and right now she is a 7th grader. She has 2 sisters and 3 brothers. She smiles and feels proud when saying she has the best grades in her family. “Sometimes I help my father with Turkish” she adds.
“My Turkish friends help me a lot.”
Ragad goes to school in Altindag, Ankara, Turkey. She have great relations with her friends, when she had trouble understanding the classes, her friends help them a lot, she says. Ragad got a certificate of achievement this semester because of her success in her classes. When we ask what is her favorite course, she replies English and adds: “I want to be a translator, and help the people who cannot speak Turkish and English.”
Her family members became so proud when she got a certificate of achievement this semester. And Ragad became so happy when her mother told “You got this achievement even though you did not know Turkish before.”
When we ask Ragad what is the secret of this success, she smiles and replies: “I don’t really have secrets, just don’t be afraid to ask what you don’t understand to your classmates, don’t just sit in there silently. Study until you understand, and most important: don’t feel left out.”
This success story of Ragad happened thanks to your contributions. With your help we had a chance to send her to language courses and supply her with most needed educational materials.
