The Hayat Women's Collective has some ambitious goals for the future that will help them achieve an even bigger positive impact among refugee communities in #istanbul, Turkey!In the near future, HAYAT aims to:-- Register themselves as an official organization operating in Istanbul (and beyond, in areas with high numbers of refugees) to increase their efforts in ways that reach the most people in need.-- Establish a formal office space with training rooms and space for specialized activities to be held - especially sensitive activities, such as psychosocial support counseling, that need private space.-- Expand the focus areas to also include legal support services for refugee women and men who do not understand or have trouble upholding their rights, economic training opportunities (especially for female breadwinners), and more awareness-raising and integration initiatives.-- Expand HAYAT membership to women of other nationalities, including Turkish women and other Arab refugee women.-- Increase HAYAT's presence as a resource platform that can help direct refugees to the available support services they need. -- Expand coordination among other local and regional organizations working in similar fields to help strengthen the reach and impact of mutual project initiatives. ARDI is excited to continue collaborating with and supporting the #hayatwomencollective later this year and we are proud of the progress they are making to reach their goals. fb.watch/cW9HwlCT5V/To learn more about #ardi, please visit our website: www.atlasrdi.com ...

تعمل ARDI و Hayat Women's Collective على تطوير مرحلة جديدة من مشروعنا لدعم اللاجئين السوريين في مدينة #اسطنبول. من أجل ضمان نجاح مشروعنا ، نحتاج إلى التعلم من مشاريعنا السابقة. لذلك ، أجرت ARDI دراسة استقصائية بين أعضاء HAYAT ، وكذلك العديد من المستفيدين الذين شاركوا في أنشطة المشروع السابقة لمعرفة ما تم تحقيقه وما لا يزال يتعين القيام به لدعم #اللاجئين السوريين.الآن ، نريد أن نسأل المجتمع السوري عبر شبكة الإنترنت عن اي ملاحظات قيمة يمكننا استخدامها لتعزيز مشاريعنا المستقبلية. يرجى مشاركة إجاباتكم على الأسئلة التالية في قسم التعليقات:1) ما هي أكثر أنواع الدعم اللازمة لمساعدة النساء والرجال والشباب السوريين على تحقيق صحة نفسية أفضل؟2)ما هي أنواع الأنشطة اللازمة لمساعدة النساء والرجال والشباب السوريين على تحسين سبل عيشهم و الشعور بالتمكين الاقتصادي؟3)ما هي الشواغل الرئيسية بين مجتمعات اللاجئين من حيث التطرف على الانترنت والتضليل؟4) ما هي الخدمات أو الموارد اللازمة لدعم الاحتياجات التي لم تحقق، و التحديات التي يواجهونها اللاجئين السوريين في اسطنبول؟شكرا لك على ملاحظاتكم القيمة. نحن نتطلع إلى تطوير مشروع جديد يلبي الاحتياجات الرئيسية للاجئين في مدينة اسطنبول. تعرف على المزيد حول منظمة ARDI من خلال زيارتكم لموقعنا على الإنترنت: www.atlasrdi.com ...
