We are pleased to announce our updates on the Syrian Women Empowerment Program!
This is an event which is becoming more and more successful amongst the women in the camp. We allow them to come and they are allowed to bring their children if they are the only caretakers of them. Its an evening for them to relax, let loose in a fun and safe environment. We are seeing that this is a fun night for community buildig, beacuse the women get to know each other better through these weekly Ladies night inside our community yurt.
Digital Learning Lab
We are setting up another inspiring activitiy for the women on our camp - the digital learning lab!
This is a project about trainings on how to become more technological. This is a unique opporutnity for women to harness their skills or to learn entirely a new set of skillset which can benefit them in the future on their next journey. We are doing this thanks to the sponsorship of 20 new Sony laptops. We have a team of volunteers who are now running these trainings weekly and which we are now integrating as part of our Syrian Women Empowerment programme for the women to receive these trainings.
Cooking Activities - Eid Mubarak!
With the celebrations of Eid recently, we celebrated with the community and through the women's programme, the women were able to cook for the rest of the entire community. Using traditional Syrian receipies inside our Giving Food truck, we were able to cater for a large part of the community. This was a project that was very well received by the women from Syria who were cooking, who could share their receipies and celebrate as if they were at home. They used all traditional dishes and recipies. The rest of the community greatly enjoyed the flavours. It was a peaceful and grand set of cooking events for the community.
Due to a large influx of people coming into the island, the dynamics are changing. With other camps outside Kara Tepe becoming over populated, we are creating more space inside of Kara Tepe to be able to accomodate this. For this reason, we expect more Syrian women to come into the community. We are ready to integrate them into part of our projects and activities.
We are greateful for all of your support!
We look forward to updating you soon on the next developments and results from our Syrian Women Empowerment Program.
