Through Blue Pencil Association, it has been provided Turkish language courses for Syrian refugee women and children in Istanbul (Fener and Balat) since 2014. Syrian children and women who are living in Fener and Balat have continued to learn Turkish language with the support of the volunteers from Turkey. Eight refugee Children aged 6-12 years and twelve refugee women between the ages of 19 and 45 participated to the Turkish language lessons. Besides, this association has also enabled refugees and asylum seekers to take the equivalency certificates from the Ministry of Education, to enrol in the public schools and to take temporary identity cards by cooperating with the ministry of education.
