We come together with food

By Ekin Calici Kiyak | Research Officer

The world becomes more and more challenging and darksome with the pandemic. As Support to Life, we always try to find ways to come together and overcome the difficulties. This time, we are representing to you our graduates from the food production courses.

3.6 million Syrians living in Turkey, face the risk of losing their jobs, failing to satisfy the basic needs and violations of human rights. To create a new livelihood opportunity and support women empowerment, we started a new educational activity in the Culture Center for women in Altnözü. Refugee women received food production courses along with Turkish women contributing a more colorful and rich joint culture at the same time.

Women came together thanks to food and enjoyed producing with each other. The training was on foods that can be sold in markets like delicious marmalade or foods that are common and popular in Turkish cuisine. The training enabled women from local and refugee communities to socialize, and was based on a community-based approach that puts the emphasis on skills building as well as knowledge-exchange. 21 Syrian and 10 Turkish women, will be receiving completion certificates from the Public Education Centre.

For building a better future together, we support life by empowering women. We seek to help refugees resume their self-reliant, independent lives as individuals. With your help we can reach out to more women and create a new path to walk on altogether.
