Where are we

Kids Rainbow began operating in 2015 in Gaziantep's Akyol district, where many Syrian families live. Concerned by the lack of educational opportunities for young Syrian refugees and kids under temporary protection, the organization emerged as a safe and inclusive learning space where to develop skills and strengthen community bonds.

Syrians in gaziantep

Situated 92 km from Halep, Gaziantep has a population of over two million people, among which a quarter are registered Syrian refugees.

 

In order to have access to public services such as education and healthcare, Syrian migrants need to apply for temporary protection in their city of arrival.

 

Enrollment in school is allowed solely in the city where the permit is issued. This regulation creates many difficulties for children whose families are forced to move to industrial cities like Gaziantep to seek job opportunities.

Key Numbers

(source: 3RP 2019)

3.57 million Syrians are registered under temporary protection in Turkey (almost half are children)

42% of Refugees (all nationalities) live under the poverty line.

191,000 Syrian children are working
