The aim of the CCTE programme is to encourage school enrolment and improve pupils' attendance. The programme has two main components; families receive a cash transfer when their children attend school regularly, and a child protection outreach service.
The CCTE is implemented through a partnership between the Turkish ministry of family and social policies, the ministry of national education, the Turkish Red Crescent, and UNICEF with the financial support from the European Union, Norway, and the United States of America.
Since May 2017 this programme has reached 320 000 refugee children in Turkey. Education is so critical in the life of children. Together efforts must continue to make a difference for many more children.
