Kocaeli Kültürel Gelişim ve Dayanışma Derneği (KOGED)

KOGED  is a non-profit, non-governmental NGO  founded in 2009 by a group of dedicated educators who wanted to  to contribute to  the cultural and social development of the community and   personal development of individuals.

              KOGED has wide experience in developing, implementing and disseminating national& international projects funded by several donors such as the EU and the UN. Within the scope of these projects, the organisation  has implemented  several non-formal training activities and  organised  awareness-raising events&campaigns to raise the community’s awareness of  important social issues. It has  also secured a a wide network of local/regional/international  contacts including CSOs, schools,  local municipalities , public  institutions  and  Kocaeli University through collaboration in many projects. This is expected to  facilitate the proper dissemination of the transnational projects we take part in.

               The issues KOGED has addressed in the transnational projects so far are  equity, gender equality,  women’s rights, volunteerism, youth entrepreneurship, vocational guidance , , youth entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship ,  NEETs,   migrants and the professional development of  migrant-related educators. KOGED also offers support and  mentorship to other NGOs about  project development and management.

               We believe that migrants  are the responsibility of all organisations, not only those with a specialised focus on migrants and /or  refugees. Since the majority of the KOGED staff are educators, they firmly maintain the view that young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds should have access to the services and programs, education being the first and foremost, that all young people are entitled to. In addition, the local community’s awareness of the refugees’ issues should be increased and their engagement secured  to ease social tensions and create greater acceptance of asylum seekers . Hence,  KOGED is engaged in awareness-raising  activities to highlight the social challenges faced by the Syrian and other nationality migrants living under temporary protection in the area.  We organize  events to promote awareness on the importance of the engagement of NGOs, especially youth organisations/ initiatives and volunteers, to produce practical solutions to the problems refugees are faced with and change the mindset of the mainstream public.
