Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a humanitarian, non-governmental and non-profit organization founded in 1956 and working in over 30 countries in the world. DRC has been operating in southeastern Turkey (Hatay, Şanlıurfa, Kilis, and Kahramanmaraş) since 2013, serving Persons of Concerns (PoC) including Syrian refugees and the affected host communities. As the conflict stretches on in Syria, DRC remains committed to developing long-term solutions that serve the needs of displaced Syrians and other refugees and migrants currently living in Turkey.

DRC Turkey implements protection and economic recovery programs in collaboration with local civil society organizations (CSOs). As part of our partnership strategy, we are planning a series of capacity building activities for partner CSOs, including gender mainstreaming training.
