Immigrant Women’s Outdoor Training and Impact on Their Children’s Education

This is research examining the increasing numbers of migrants from various countries, and the current social and economic challenges and barriers that they face in Turkey.
Research is focused on women refugees who left Syria and Iraq due to the war, and immigrated to Turkey.They were within the scope of the Vocational Training Program for Young and Female Syrians in Turkey. The project is technically supported by UNIDO, AFAD, Istanbul Ready to Wear and Apparel Exporters Association (IHKIB) and theTurkish Ministry of National Education (MoNE). The project has provided students with experience in out-of-school learning, determination of prior learning, training of non-Turkish- speaking people, training after severe social trauma, and so on. The project was financed by the Japanese government. The data is provided by MoNE and a questionnaire was applied to the trainees. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the training in terms of positivity, employment and trainees’ children’s enrolment to school and its sustainability. It is clear that the trainees were positively impacted by these training activities and their perspectives of life were partially remedied. So, they started to work and were highly motivated to register their children at campus schools.
