The Arabic Language Education Project is a response to the closure of schools that teach Arabic due to Turkey’s “compulsory” integration policy, leaving many refugee children without the opportunity to learn their mother tongue. With the establishment of this project, these children are given the chance to embrace their native language and culture with open arms.
It’s a beautiful thing to see these children light up with joy as they learn about their native language and culture. The project provides three Arabic lessons per week per class, based on the level of the class. This ensures that every child has an equal opportunity to learn and grow. Through this project, we can help these young refugees build a brighter future. We can give them a sense of belonging, identity, and pride in their heritage. It’s more than just teaching a language; it’s about restoring hope and dignity to a generation that has suffered so much. The Arabic Language Education Project is a vital step towards helping these young refugees heal and thrive.
