Projects Supporting Education
Believing that education is the most valuable investment to be made in Turkey’s future, Şölen has been contributing to education and training since its establishment, and has brought together its activities in this field under the umbrella of “İyilik Şöleni” (Celebration of Goodness).
Şölen touches the lives of hundreds of students with the schools it has built in Gaziantep and Sivas. One of these schools, Gürün Anatolian Teacher’s High School in Sivas, has been instrumental in preparing youth for the future with hope. Two other schools in that city, built by thanks to the “100 Philanthropists for the 100th Year” campaign launched under the coordination of Gaziantep Governorship, continue Şölen’s journey of investments that add value to life.
Şölen makes donations on special occasions on behalf of all its employees to foundations and associations related to education, ensuring that children all over Turkey are prepared for a better future. With donations made to the Darüşşafaka Society, orphaned children or those with families with insufficient financial means have access to quality education to ensure they are prepared for their futures.
The belief that education is the biggest investment to be made in Turkey’s future has led Şölen to collaborate with the Educational Volunteers Foundation of Turkey (TEGV) to undertake important efforts to support education in order to give children the opportunity to discover their own potentials and talents. Şölen also covers the education expenses of hundreds of children with its donation campaign during Ramadan and Eid-al-Adha, with the slogan “Eid for adults, future for children”.
