Education is one of the most important factors in a child’s development. In Kobanê, children living in the camps outside the city must often walk kilometers to the nearest school. When the weather turns extreme – both in summer and winter – it becomes nearly impossible for many young students to make it to school. But, with a little help from a lot of friends, attending school is no longer a problem! Stichting Help Kobanê delivered a newly remodeled school bus to Miss Muna’s Preschool in Kobanê, increasing the number of children able to attend school from 150 to 500. A huge thank you to all of our partners and to all who contributed to our crowdfunding campaign! We raised almost € 100.000, enough to not only provide the school with a bus but packages including school bags, notebooks, pens and pencils, toys, sweaters, socks, and workbooks! Check out the children trying out the bus below, decorated with the names of some of our amazing donors!
