EU To Provide Syrians In Turkiye With Nearly $570M In Education Aid

Bloc to continue cooperating with Ankara, providing financial support in education 'for years to come,' says Meyer Landrut.

The EU will send an additional €530 million ($567 million) as educational assistance for Syrian children in Turkiye, the bloc's top diplomat said on Thursday.
"An additional €530 million ($567 million) has been dedicated" for the Syrian children's education via the Promoting Integration of Syrian Kids into Turkish Education System (PIKTES) program, Nikolaus Meyer-Landrut, head of the EU Delegation to Turkiye, told Anadolu Agency during a visit to the southeastern province of Mardin.
"This will allow to continue the financing of the PIKTES program in which we finance more than 3,300 teachers who do an extraordinary job but also more than 4,500 security and cleaning staff who is also indispensable for the success of good schools," Meyer-Landrut went on to say.
He noted that one-third of the initial €6 billion had been invested in supporting Turkiye with education measures.
Cooperation in education to continue 'for years to come'
Meyer-Landrut emphasized that the bloc's cooperation with Turkiye in the area of education would continue.
"I'm happy to say today that we'll continue our cooperation and our financial support for the (Turkiye's) Ministry of National Education in the area of education for the years to come," he said.
The bloc's cooperation in the education of Syrian children in Turkiye under PIKTES will last until summer 2025, the EU official noted.
However, this support will not be limited to PIKTES, he explained, with the EU also to provide cash transfers so Syrian families can send their children to school.
Adding that the EU also assists with substantive and equipment support to prefabricated schools for early education, he said it finances the construction of around 300 such schools.
Along with the ambassadors of some EU countries, Meyer-Landrut paid a visit to Mardin for talks with local Turkish officials.
The delegation visited a secondary school in the Kiziltepe district and met with teachers and students.
Turkiye is the largest host country for Syrian refugees and provides protection to nearly 4 million people who fled the neighboring country. -
