The Child Caravan Project, carried out by the International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation (IBC) in cooperation with Expertise France, attracts great attention.
The project team started to work in Şehit Major Bedir Karabıyık Primary School located in Sefaköy district of Küçükçekmece, where a large number of Syrian refugees live. Activities starting with the new year, have already been experienced by 200 children.
The daily average of 40 Syrian and Turkish children in the Child Caravan, which is a social integration project, carries out a different activity every day through 6 different booklets. Children have the opportunity to experience art activities such as painting, sculpture, drama and music as well as daily skills such as empathy, self-care, environmental awareness and traffic rules.
The project, which is hosted by the Küçükçekmece Municipality, will be carried out in certain primary schools in the district until the end of May. The project is part of the Qudra Program funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ).
School director Ahmet Yavaş and Deputy Director Yavuz Yavrutür stated that the project would be of great benefit to children and stated their support to the project. Child Caravan will stay at the same school until the end of the school term holiday and thus more children will be reached
