What We Do

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In Turkey and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn, and protection from harm.

Our programming in Turkey is aimed at increasing access to learning and education, addressing child poverty (through livelihoods and income generation), strengthening child protection mechanisms, improving psychosocial wellbeing, and social cohesion and awareness raising. We have a range of programming across various districts of Istanbul, Hatay and Ordu. We partner with ministries, municipalities, partner organisations and local communities to identify and address pressing needs and implement our programmes.

We collaborate with Save the Children’s country offices involved in the Syria response to approach solutions holistically and from both ends of the displacement axis.
