"We ask Allah to give them [our children] a good future. We hope Allah won’t show them what we have experienced and seen."

You can watch the story of the Elsalih family, whom we met in our “Last Destination for Child Labor: Eskişehir!” project, in the video below.

Our goal is to make the lives of refugee families a little easier and establish a brighter future where children live safely. Everyone has the right to a lifestyle that respects human dignity, and it is everybody’s responsibility to make it possible. Only in this way can we make a life together possible.

We want to create a better world for millions of displaced people and their children, and we strive to protect their rights and well-being.

Around 80 million people worldwide are displaced. Turkey remains the country hosting the highest number of refugees. According to March 2021 data, more than 3.6 million Syrian nationals and nearly 320,000 international protection status refugees and asylum seekers (including refugees from other nationalities) live in Turkey. The Elsalih family is only one of these families who had to flee from their home due to war and turmoil and took refuge in Turkey.

* “The Last Destination for Child Labor: Eskişehir!” The project is supported by the Local Initiative Fund in Turkey (LIFT) within the scope of the “The Community Centers and Local Initiatives Project (CLIP)”, which is co-financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO).
