International Day Of The Girl Child
International Day Of The Girl Child

11 October 2022 was International Girl Child Day. We asked our students, if you had a magical wish, what would you like to change on this special day? It was actually surprising and sad to still get these answers in the 22nd century. Here are the answers we got;


  • I wish they could live freely and exercise their right to education to the fullest.
  • If I had a magical wish, I would provide more free world where girls can fulfill their dreams.
  • I would like to remove all obstacles for understanding that a woman is a HUMAN, not a man.
  • If I had a magical wish, I would like to make everyone realize that there is no difference between boys and girls, to remove all the obligations imposed on girls and to erase all the difficulties that hinder their education.
  • I would like to change the fate of child brides.
  • I would like to eliminate sexist discourses such as "Man's word, Act like a man, girl like a man".
  •  I wish I could wake up to a day without discrimination.

 Despite the determination of the United Nations as one of the most important problems of the world being the empowerment of girls and all the efforts of non-governmental organizations, it is sad that the same problems are still experienced in all countries of the World, but there is no room to be desparate. Our answer to all problems on this subject is education, and we continue to work on with your support. Because supporting the education of girls means educated generations. That is why your support is priceless for us.

Dear friends,

This year we are very happy as good news started to come with the end of school term.
First, the best ones, we have great news. One of the girls who graduated last year just started to work in our little town as a medical doctor which made us very happy.

Again, this year, a young girl also just graduated from medical school. You may remember her, because we shared her story before, but it was sad one. To remind you the story, we enclosed the video in this report.

By completing her education, she changed not only her life but also her family's life. She had lost her father long time ago. She has one sister and one brother and her mother. Now she has also become a medical doctor and will take the responsibility for her entire family.

We are very happy for her and her family. By donating to our Foundation, you gave a bright future to whole family.
Most probably, you think you supported only one girl; however, this support gave us a chance to change 4 people’s lives.

We are so glad to have you, we hope we always have you.


Best Regards,

Dear All,

We started March this year with great news. We received the biggest donation ever made to the Education is Power project, and we wanted to share this great news with you and thank those unsung heroes with this report.

This donation made by 351 people is very valuable to us, because we can meet the amount of scholarships required for 25 female students' one-year university education with it. 

This donation has another very valuable meaning. Knowing that there are people in other parts of the world who are concerned about women's empowerment, just like us, and seeing that they find our efforts worth supporting, motivated us tremendously.

It increased our hopes for the future. We will continue our work more happily. We sincerely thank these unsung heroes and promise to work harder to be worthy of their trust.


With love and respect,

Dear friends,

As we leave another year behind, we remembered how hard times wehavehad in the last 2 years. Covid-19 and other disasters in all parts of our beautiful World have negatively affected all of us. In these difficult days, we once again remembered the power of Solidarity and goodness. We've all done our best to help those who are in some way in a difficult situation.

Buldan Foundation has managed to support 133 wonderful young girls while completing 5 years of its establishment and still continues to support 100 young girls.  We couldn't have done this without you. While thanking you once again for this, we wish you all a Merry Chrismas with your loved ones and a Happy New Year where all your dreams come true.
