Ahmed, studying in Turkish language courses, redesigned the child-friendly area in the center with our Konya team and other beneficiaries.
Ahmed, who reconnected with his self-confidence and abilities along with the love he saw in the course, came to Turkey at the age of 33, leaving Iraq, where he was born and grew up, four years ago. Trying to hold on to life in Turkey due to the crisis and unstable environment in his country. Ahmed both improves his Turkish at IBC Konya Community Hub and benefits from the center's legal and psychological support mechanisms.
Ahmed, whose main profession is journalism, said, “I always thought that if I saw the world as beautiful, it would be beautiful, but there were days when nothing went right. I learned to be happy by overcoming the obstacles that life puts in front of me. My biggest supporter on this journey has been IBC. I almost isolated myself until I started the Turkish course, but the team here supported me with such a loving approach that I started to feel better day by day.” Ahmet's biggest dream is to establish personal development and art workshops, especially for the displaced and disadvantaged people in the future.
