Your donation will allow The Tribe Turkey to continue our work with displaced Syrian Refugees in the city and rural areas of Izmir, turkey.

We share this world. We know there is a crisis
You cant jump to the end at the beginning. But we can help each other step by step
Our part of the story is from Izmir…

There are signs of change in Turkey, but problems exist. Refugees have been given some rights. Access to education and medical support is improving, but limited. In reality, these changes are not well implemented. Language barriers & poor, exploitive working conditions of a mostly informal/illegal market mean economic opportunities are limited for Syrians.

At The Tribe Turkey:
  • Our core is about social values and we strive to resolve community problems.

  • Our work is a collaboration. Listening, interviewing and brainstorming the issues with those displaced and marginalised allows us to enact empowering social change.

  • We involve Turkish businesses, international higher education partners, hire Syrian translators and are in constant consultation with those we aim to help.

What we have done so far:
  • Winterisation - we delivered 3,000 blankets, 200 wood burning heaters, 3,500 bags (90 tonnes) of firewood, 500 mattresses and many plastic coverings for weather protection;

  • Shelter program - distributed around 200 metal frame tents, 2,500 pallets for flooring, began building latrines, solving water supply problems, water drainage and waste management;

  • Education - Piloted & implemented educational programmes focussed on Arabic literacy and mathematics for children unable to attend local Turkish schools;

  • Personally helped and referred many Syrians to organisations we work alongside with relating to translation, medical, legal help.

The Tribe Turkey is a charitable fund under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund
