To enable Syrian refugee children to integrate successfully into Turkish primary schools the project empowers them with sufficient Turkish language skills, support of their parents and favourable learning conditions through reduced post-stress learning hindrances and a welcoming school climate.
- to work towards systemic change, by operating as a show case that persuades the public administration to invest more into primary schools. The project wants to show that it pays off to provide extra resources to primary schools’ capacity to integrate Syrian refugee children successfully. Such an investment is preventive and avoids the ‘curative’ high costs that result from non-integration of Syrians.
- to promote a replicable and scalable approach for refugee integration that engages Syrian parents for the children’s schooling, as a means of integration for both children and parents.
- to promote an approach that is collaborative with the municipality.
