Turkey funds school for Syrian refugees

School in refugee camp on Turkish border helps children adjust to life beyond the conflict at home.

    Of the thousands of Syrians now living in refugee camps across the border in Turkey, there are hundreds of school-age children who fled with their families to escape violence.

    The Turkish government has spent $2m to build a school along the Turkish-Syrian border in the Killis refugee camp, where a special emphasis is put on math and science.
