Support for Refugee kids in Turkey

Donation protected
Since 2014, I've been running aid and Education projects within the Middle East as to promote Education as well as the Sciences.

For 2017, I am hoping to continue those projects and am running this campaign as to support several projects within Turkey. Projects for both locals as well as Syrian Refugee kids.

Unfortunately, due to unexpected circumstances I am now unable to fund these projects, and some of the projects partly funded. This GoFundMe campaign is to raise funds as to support those projects. Any money raised beyond the stated goal will go towards more projects in Turkey, as well as Iraq.

A break down of Costs are as follows. Note: Additional photos will be shown at the end of this post.

Educational Support package

£150 for educational supplies for Schools in Both Ankara and Van (Turkey). This is for poor schools, as well as Syrian Refugees there. This is for two packages which include, STEM support materials such as microscopes, slides, educational posters, notepads and Books. These materials will also be used for on site lessons which I will help deliver. Cost of transport £40 per package.

Teddies for kids
£70 for supplying approximately 100 Teddy Bears for 100 children in Ankara, Turkey. 60 of those Bears will go to Orphans in Ankara, whilst the remainder goes to 40 Syria Refugee Kids who are staying in Ankara.
Some of the Bears have been collected, cost is for remainder of bears and delivery cost to Turkey. 

Teddies packed for their trip to Van, Turkey. Currently in transet there. Similar package will hopefully be sent to orphans and refugees in Ankara.

Promoting Literacy, mini library
The Remainder of the money will be used for  promoting literacy by encouraging you children, refugees, and impoverished locals to take up reading. This money will go towards establishing a small library ran by volunteers, and should be enought to buy between 100 to 130 decent level books. This will be enough to kickstarting this project.

Some of the books supplied to Young Refugees in Ankara. The funds should provide more, better quality books. 

Any funds collected above the goal will go funding more projects within the Middle East. Other projects such as Field Trips to Museums/Observatories in Ankara costing roughly £70 for 40+ children, for a day's trip. 

No matter what is raised, all help is deeply appreciated.

My goal is to supply over these materials by March of 2017. I, nor anyone involved with these projects profits in anyway.

Education managed to turn my life around, and with these project I hope we can all do the same for the children of this region.

If you are in the UK and are willing to help with donations of books /educational materials, then please contact myself.
