With your priceless donations, we set our course to Sakarya and planned to organize a new event for our children who are already in the first days of semester break.

After having a long and challenging semester, the children were feeling relaxed and they were enthusiastic about attending to various activities. So we called their family and invited them to our ‘surprise activity’ at our Sakarya Multi Service Center.

We Were Surprised Before the Children!

We ordered 65 bags full of stationeries. Before children, we were also surprised with what we saw in the bags: Notebooks and pens were doubled and there were additional pastels in the kit. ‘This is a contribution from our store...’ said the owner of stationery store, ‘… as a humble addition to the meaningful donations for your meaningful project!’ 

Reward for a Long Semester & Motivation for the Next One

Children visited our office with their family the day before and they became very happy with what was waiting for them. After seeing our friends who were welcoming them at the desk with the gifts, they made their way to our playground. Having checked their new stationeries, they started playing games with our friends. 

Mohammad, 8 years old, expresses his happiness saying, ‘I am very happy with my gifts. I will use all these staff in the second semester, and my sister, Hoda, who is 4 years old, will also be thrilled with painting notebooks and pastels!’

Fatima seemed to be very happy with her new pink bag, and she also promised to share all of these with her friends too! 

At the end of the day, everybody felt the same happiness, hope and relief… We and the families are grateful for your supports, and children are already waiting for the second semester to start! 

Together, we are stronger!

Teachers are on holiday, students are having rest and the school is closed. Everybody is letting of the steam of a year and getting prepared for the next season… But we haven’t stopped!

In our last activity, we visited Maresal Fevzi Çakmak Primary School (Yüregir, Adana) to distribute the new bags for 50 children with your valuable donations. We played with them, had wonderful time together and promised to keep in touch.

During the summer, children attended many activities such as ‘Wall Painting, Theatre, Handcraft, Chess Workshops’. Also, they attended to Science Museum Trips, Zoo Trips and Botanical Garden trips with our Multi Service Centers and our Child and Family Support Centers.

We tried to make the idle summer days more useful and more enjoyable for the children.

During the summer, we made our researches, we applied to our assessment reports, we spotted schools and children in need and we are completely ready for the coming education season.

Bags are ready and they must be fulfilled with notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, etc.

Children are ready to start a new season with a passion and excitement.

We are ready to reach as many children as possible.

Now it seems that there is only one question left:

Will you join us along the way to promote education?

50 Children Have Received Their New School Bags

After joining GlobalGiving and introducing our project Education Versus Lost Generation! we received our first donations and started off immediately!

One of our most important goals for this activity is to reach children whose family cannot afford for stationary equipment which is of vital importance for keeping up their educations. In Turkey, even families want their children to go to school, due to the financial difficulties they couldn’t afford additional costs such as transportation and stationary kits, etc. Furthermore, children are going to work and work under heavy conditions almost every day…  

Encouraging and supporting them to go to school or to continue their education is crucial for ASAM and through donations, ASAM is developing activities or assistance in different provinces of Turkey to promote education among refugee kids.

After receiving your valuable donations, our staff got together and prepared 50 new school bags including stationary kits. After making researches, we identified 50 children who are studying at Maresal Çakmak Primary School in Yüregir / ADANA.

Our collegues visited the school at the end of March, gathered the children around them and gave their bags by giving special attention to each child and spent their day by playing games with them. 

We are grateful for your supports to make the children happy and helping us work on removing the barriers between children and access to education.
