On November 8th and 9th, the third international meeting of the SOFIE project took place in Samsun (Turkey).

The meeting has been an important moment for all the partners of the consortium to exchange views about the next steps of the project that will be based on the finalization of the SOFIE online platform and a curriculum course for mother and children.

Hayri Şen, Office of the Private Secretary, Governorship of Samsun which has been a noteworthy experience in order to improve the impact of the project and create a dialogue with the regional institutions about the topic of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
