Assalam Children’s University is an alternative education system established by the Assalam Foundation four years ago, where children can learn science, computers, coding, art, drama, language and sports and develop their abilities. The children’s university aims to educate African children with superior abilities and intelligence in many different subjects, from classical scientific methods to 3D printers. Every year, around 50 children graduate from the Children’s University.
Africamp is Assalam’s year-round camping program. Hundreds of campers from different periods and age groups attend the youth center (which has a capacity of 94), the construction of which was completed in June 2022. On one hand, the campers receive training on many topics from permaculture to survival techniques, from vocational training to factory settings of human, on the other hand, they are enjoying the turquoise sea, white sand, water sports, the sun and ecological village life. By 2022, around 500 children and youth will have benefited from the camps.
Assalam Vocational School, whose construction was completed in 2022, started training in agriculture and animal husbandry, carpentry, sewing and design, cookery and tourism-hotel management with 43 students as of July. In the school, which plans to open three more classes in three different areas in 2023, mostly orphan mothers receive education through sponsors. After 1 year of practical and theoretical training, it is aimed to empower and employ students who are provided with internship opportunities.
Assalam is an active Permaculture demonstration site and has been used to teach permaculture to international and local students in Assalam’s educational projects and to tourists in sustainable community tours.
