BENEFITING: BRIDGE TO TURKIYE
ORGANIZER: BRIDGE TO TURKIYE
Around the world, over 1 million refugee children have had to leave school because they had to flee or their country couldn't afford educating. People believe that the children who have fled to lebanon, Turkey or any other country that accepts refugees get the education they need, but in reality, they don’t. It’s 2017, and the number is sadly increasing. You can help by donating to charities like Bridge to Turkiye Fund (BTF) which help children get the education they deserve.
Refugee children around the world don't get a quality education. There are “as many as half a million Syrian refugee children in Turkey that are not attending school” which leaves “them open to exploitation in sweatshops and other forms of abuse”(Whewell). This is just one country dealing with this problem, but if we don't help them, then no one will.
Thankfully, there are many organizations like BTF that are helping refugee children. BTF is one of the better charities because it allows their donors to choose how they want to help the child. Depending on the amount of money you can choose how you want to help the child whether it be by providing “a backpack kit and education kit or sponsoring a mother and her 2 children for two months” which makes a huge difference (Team).
