"Empowerment through Education" (for refugees)The goal of this project is to provide educational opportunities for refugees in Turkey, mainly from Iraq, who don't have the opportunity to attend formal classes due to their refugee status. This has been an on-going program for the past 7 years and it has proven very successful. The goal of this initiative is to boost these children and teenagers' confidence through helping them improve their English language skills, thereby giving them a head start in rebuilding their lives as most of them are applying for visas to English speaking countries such as Canada, Australia and the USA. Football and other sports lessons are an added incentive which the students enjoy very much. "Discovering Ability in Disability"The goal of the project is to provide support for institutions working with disabled children/young people/adults, as well as to provide opportunities for volunteers who would like to gain experience in working with those who have disabilities (especially children). Project activities include teaching, organizing activities such as arts and crafts, sports and games, as well as spending time with those who are disabled to enhance their mental and physical abilities and providing emotional support. AED is presently supporting 2 institutions working with disabled children with EVS volunteers. "Coloring their World"The goal of the project is to provide a higher standard environment for government hospitals, schools, and other similar institutions. Upgrading government institutions' physical appearance is a positive step for a better overall 'attitude and environment of wellness' in a sector that often does not have sufficient budgetary assets for this but where the need for a more uplifting environment is apparent.
