Co-founders of Hanan visit the students periodically to see their progress. In March, 2017, the children were excited and proud to host their first art show in their school. Great imaginations were being displayed and visitors left in amazement of the talents that lay behind these faces.

Hanan Foundation set out to reinstill hope in the children who not only lost their homes, but years of education. With hard work from the volunteers in Orlando as well as our dedicated volunteer in Istanbul, Hanan Foundation has been able to secure a wonderful new facility, Hanan Okulu, as a donation from the Turkish government. Total enrollment is 530 refugee students thus far, with a majority of them being orphans. For many of these students ranging in age from 6-16, this is their first time in school.
