Help Ibrahim Go Back To School.


This is Ibrahim he is 11years old from Aleppo in Syria and now living with his family in Izmir. Since we heard his story a few days ago he has been on our mind a lot. He used to attend school but now has to work to help his family pay rent and survive. He works long hours in a tea house from 8am until 7pm serving tea, cleaning up and running errands. He earns just 200tl ( 47 gbp,68 usd) per month but the family's monthly rent is 320tl ( 75 gbp, 108 usd).
His story has touched a cord with my husband Mehmet as at the age of 9yrs we was sent away to Ku┼čadasi from the east of Turkey to earn money to help keep the family. He missed a lot of school and has always regretted it and made sure that all his 5 brothers and 2 sisters have gone to school. Education has the power to transform children’s futures. We're determined to ensure that Ibrahim gets an education and the chance to write his own future.

We have decided to help to make Ibrahim's life a little easier and go back to school by helping to pay the rent for the family. If you would like to help Ibrahim go back to school please click on the donate button below.
