A Japan-funded facility for female Syrian refugees opened Wednesday in Gaziantep, southern Turkey, to provide vocational training and Turkish language education.

The facility, for which Tokyo offered $1 million, is operated by U.N. Women, an organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. It is the first such facility to be run by U.N. Women in Turkey, Japanese officials said.
