For many poor families, the main priority is to earn money to put food on the table.
And for many poor refugee and Turkish families, that means their children have to take jobs too.
The Ankara Centre for Street Children is a charity that tries to change that and encourage children from poor families to return to education with sports, arts and learning activities.
Their families are given supplies and donations, so their children don't have to sell water on the streets or take jobs in bakeries.
