Blossom Hill is proud to celebrate the Day of the Girl through our empowering programs for refugees. We know that when you educate a girl, she will express her voice, learn about her rights, bring economic stability to her family and community, and lead a healthy life. She will also teach these to her children.
Through our work that spans early childhood to youth programs, Blossom Hill puts the rights of girls each and every day at the forefront of our mission so they can thrive. You can listen to the voices of some of our girls through these stories.
Fatma's parents and their eight children came to Turkey from Syria in 2012 to escape the war. Fatma was born in Turkey as a refugee and joined Blossom Hill Fellow Leyla Atik's art therapy program five years later. She suffered temper tantrums and had a very hard time making friends and concentrating on any given task. Through a targeted art therapy program, Fatma was able to overcome these issues and is now thriving.
