A state-run agency and local charity have joined forces to teach Turkish to Syrian children through Nasreddin Hodja, a renowned mystic whose exploits have been the source of beloved parables since the time of the Seljuks in Anatolia.
The Presidency For Turks Abroad and Related Communities (YTB), a state-run agency, and the Turkish charity Yardımeli, sponsored "Parables of Nasreddin Hodja," which is currently being delivered to Syrian children staying in refugee camps in Adana and Osmaniye, two southern Turkish provinces.
The book consists of a Turkish and an Arabic section and the YTB plans to deliver it to refugees in other Arab countries as well. YTB President Kudret Bülbül says Nasreddin Hodja, a well-known figure in Turkey's history, is known for his quick wit and moral lessons through his parables that are tinged with satire. The parables will also provide comic relief for children impacted by the conflict.
