Turkey has quickly figured out how to use public resources to get more than half a million refugee children enrolled in schools, head of a Turkish charity working on refuge issues said Friday.

On the UN’s International Education Day, Refugee Support Center (MUDEM) General Coordinator Safa Karatas underlined Turkey’s success in meeting the needs of thousands of refugee children.

“Turkey has quickly managed to mobilize public resources and approximately 645,000 refugee children were enrolled in schools in a very short period, while the need was high above its capacity,” Karatas said.
