Summary of the project: The province of Kilis, whose geographical location is on the Syrian border; With the ongoing civil war in Syria, it is a city of strategic importance in the field of migration. Since it is a border city, it also hosts 73% more Syrian refugees than its own population. Due to this sociological structure, Kilis is a unique and special city in Turkey and in the world. The density of the Syrian population living in the city has brought some socio-cultural conflicts. In order to find solutions to these conflicts, starting with children and young people, and to help them live together, sports activities, psychological support sessions and social activities will be organized for local and refugee children in the city to participate together. In this way, preventing discrimination, supporting social cohesion and preventing irregular migration movements are among the aims of the project. By using the unifying power of sports, European athletes and judo coaches will come together. On the other hand, it is our goal that partners and beneficiaries focus on common problems related to immigrants in each country, have the opportunity to act together, produce solutions and see the results. While doing this, the process will be supported with judo training, psychological support, personal development, digital distance education and social-cultural activities. European culture will be disseminated under the umbrella of sports by establishing a network with mutual visits of the partners.
Total value of the project: 60.000 €
