SINTESI
Turkey has hosted around 1.65 million Syrian refugees during the last 3.5 years. 13-14% of these refugees are sheltered in 22 camps (accomodation centers) located in 10 provinces; Şanlıurfa, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Mardin, Adana, K.Maraş, Adıyaman, Osmaniye and Malatya. The real mass of the at least 1.4 million people are outside the camps, spread across almost everywhere in Turkey. More than 53% of the Syrians in Turkey are children and youth below 18 years old. There is a serious problem about the education enrollment of Syrian children since their stay was not expected to take so long in the beginning and the medium of instruction is Turkish. Our Project's main objective is, as highlighted in the project title, to "Develop and Implement Science Training Program for Young Refugees" and the main target group is young Syrian refugees who are not attending any regular education program.
