Tzu Chi: Sustainability and Education

Tzu Chi Foundation Partnership

In October 2018, we partnered with Tzu Chi Foundation, a Buddhist organisation for Syrian Refugees based in Istanbul, Turkey. Over 2600 refugee students attend the school, and they are desperate for more English reading materials for their lessons, so together we are setting up a new library for the students.

We are also building a community garden on the roof of the school, giving the children the opportunity to learn how to grow food, take food home to their families, donate food to other Syrian refugee families or sell their produce.
