The Dinç Family Education Center was established by IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation in the Kollo region, located 10 kilometers from Niger's capital, Niamey, in 2022. The complex, which has a capacity of 650 students and provides education to orphans and needy students, has made a significant contribution to meeting the educational needs of the region. The complex, which is built on an area of 16,000 square meters, includes a mosque, an orphanage, a primary school, a middle school, a high school, and a health center.
In the first term, 10 orphaned and underprivileged youths will receive training.
As part of the education complex, a Carpentry Training Workshop was established with the support of the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA). The workshop, equipped with the necessary tools and equipment found in a carpentry workshop, was prepared for training. In addition, a motorcycle was provided for logistical needs, along with the materials to be used in the training. Initially, the workshop is planned to accommodate 10 orphaned and underprivileged students for training.
The goal is to enable many young people to have a profession
The opening of the workshop was attended by Turkey's Ambassador to Niamey, Özgür Çınar, TİKA Niamey Coordinator Tanju Polat, IHH Niger Coordinator Sami Fadhel, and Assama Foundation Niger Coordinator Ali Çalış.
The establishment of the workshop aims to provide vocational training and opportunities for many orphaned and underprivileged youth.
