BENEFITING: SYRIAN ORPHANS ORGANIZATION
We are ready to kick-off our third annual summer camp for Syrian refugees! The Syrian Orphans Organization (SOO) takes a group of dedicated volunteers who host hundreds of children in fun, educative activities, hoping to bridge gaps in their academic lives. Some of these kids have been out of school for up to five years so it is our priority to reaquaint them with a learning environment, as well as to provide them with opportunities for growth and development. Our curriculum focuses on therapeutic education. Mostly, our summer camp will hopefully allow participants to look back on their memories with SOO and smile. We hope it is a welcome escape from any trauma and/or difficulties they have been through. We can only accomplish this with your help though. Please consider donating here to help us buy school supplies. The money will be used for back packs, notebooks, and art supplies. The camp is 100% free of charge for participants and none of the money will be used for any adminitrative/faculty needs. Previously, we have taught students English, Turkish, Arabic, Art, and Computers. Students have ranged from the age of 6 all the way through high school. The camp will be happening in Istanbul, Turkey.
