The Children of Karam House

The Big Picture curated a photography exhibit on Syrian Refugee Youth in Turkey for the inaugural One Journey Festival, a celebration of the contributions of refugees that took place at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC on June 2.

We partnered with Karam Foundation, a Chicago-based non-profit organization that aids Syrian refugees all over the world.

The exhibit was titled “The Children of Karam House: Healing and Ambition Among Syrian Refugee Youth in Turkey. The photography featured Syrian refugee youth who attend workshops at Karam House, an innovation center in Reyhanli, Turkey, where young Syrian refugees print 3-D models, design plans for public spaces, learn the Turkish language, and explore the fundamentals of photography.

To learn more about the programs, read our blog post – and have a look at the portraits of the children of Karam House and their testimonials below.
