Hello dear supporter,
how nice that you found your way to our wonderful project! !
We are KEP (Kolektif Etki Programı, in the English Collective Impact Program) and an officially registered NGO in Turkey, based in Izmir. KEP was supported by our German-based association "Drei Musketiere Reutlingen e.V." founded. Of course, there are a few other hard-working ninjas involved on site.
With our education program for single women, we want to give disadvantaged and vulnerable women from Syria the chance to lead a life in dignity and to shape it independently.
We imagine a world in which people share love, respect each other and build bridges across borders. We believe that we can only achieve this vision by supporting social change and creating an inclusive society where women have equal rights and access to education and employment opportunities.
Our mission is to empower disadvantaged women to empower them independently and economically, and to inspire the next generation of young women to be confident and strong to support themselves and their children. In this context, we design projects to improve the quality of life for women by giving them access to vocational training and workshops. This gives them the opportunity to live with dignity and to become a constructive part of their society.
For this reason we have set up an education center for disadvantaged women in a beautiful old house in Izmir, in a district called "Buca".
There women are trained in courses over six months in the textile sector and receive a certified certificate at the end of their training. At the same time, we regularly hold workshops, for example in the areas of "human rights", "rights for women" or "rights for refugees".
We work closely with the Bar Association and the vocational school in Izmir.
While the women are trained or take part in workshops, their children are cared for in our "day care" educational and playful way, receive support with their homework or receive tutoring.
We would be happy if you would like to support us and our beautiful project.
We would like to thank you very much in advance!
Your KEP team and your "musketeers"
