Strengthening the Refugees Project

The “Strengthening the Refugees Project”, carried out by the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality and the United Nations High Commissioner, is aimed at supporting women’s employment. Refugee women will take courses and learn to sew wedding dresses in the sewing course opened in Altındağ BELMEK. And, thanks to the cooperative to be established after the course, refugee women will contribute to their economy by selling the wedding gowns they sew. While the course for 20 refugee women was completed in 2020, this year 60 more refugee women will benefit from these courses by June.
