INTERNATIONAL BLUE CRESCENT(IBC) IN SOLDIRATITY WITH TURKISH MUNICIPALITIES FOCUSES ON LANGUAGE AND SKILLS TRAININ OF SYRIAN REFUGEES


After the uprising in Syria in year 2011,more than 2,5 million Syrians fled for safety to Turkey.Most of them settled in bordering provinces because of their need to continue contact with their belongings in North Syria. Their influx affected very heavily the local municipalities on infrastructure,service and security sectors. With poor resources to respond to respond the needs of the refugees municipalities faced crititcal problems that without involvement of state and civil society was looking as impossible to settle As an example we can take the posiiton of Gaziantep and Kilis Municipalities.In Kilis the original population is 98000 .The number of Syrians exceeds the original popluation as 116000.In Gaziantep one third of the population is now Syrians.

In cooperation with these two municipalities we moved to assist them in Turkish lessons,vocational training ,legal and psycosocial needs of the refugees.Municipality facilities will be used for such trainings of the children and women mainly and programs will be supervised by these municipalities.
