Esenyurt is a region where risks and sensitivities are high due to the dense refugee population and the lack of civil society support. We opened a child protection office in Esenyurt, after Fatih and Kocaeli, in order to increase civil society support and expand child protection efforts.
Working together with voluntary women and tradesmen groups at the Esenyurt child protection office, we not only strengthen our previous cooperation, but also work on reducing protection risks and supporting women and children’s access to basic rights and services.
We previously carried out the Women’s Counseling and Solidarity Center Project in Esenyurt. In the year and a half we worked in the area, we connected with many people, local institutions and organizations working there. We maintain these connections with the Child Protection Project.
