The Syrian Kids Foundation (SKF) is a Montreal based charity that provides free education to Syrian refugee children in the city of Reyhanli, Turkey. Located 5 kilometers from the border with Syria, the region has seen a large influx of Syrian refugees since 2011, where asylum-seeking families soon discovered they had no access to education for their children. In 2012, the SKF created the Al Salam school, providing employment to over 100 Syrian refugees, where approximately 2000 Syrian children are in attendance. The school provides a safe and nurturing environment where children have dignity and peace after so much hardship. The SKF also cares for its students even after graduation from Al Salam, partnering with Concordia University in Montreal to provide scholarships to 5 recent Al Salam graduates who are currently in pursuit of bachelor’s degrees in science and engineering.
