We're very excited to share with you photos from the opening of the Special Education school in Eskisehir. Prior to the build, no one ever thought to build an elevator in the school. But just after opening, the problem arose. Students were being carried from one floor to the next because there was no other way to get to class. The school reached out to TPF and our donors responded! With the help of GlobalGiving, we were able to raise enough funds to build this elevator. The students are now able to have stress-free days, not worrying about how to get to their next class!
The funds live on! Through each gift a child learned something new, a student benefitted. We thank you immensely for the choice you made to support this cause. Please check back to our GlobalGiving site periodically for new projects! If you would like to join our newsletter, click here.
An enormous THANK YOU for all of your support! Our campaign has come to a surreal close. Thanks to you, we have been able to raise a total of $27,492! We have raised funds for both Tohum Autism and Turkiye Yardim Sevenler Dernegi (TYSD). Donations made towards Tohum, will help fund free education and medical services for students of the school. Donations made towards TYSD will build an elevator in their school located in Eskisehir. The school specializes in children with Autism and mental disabilities. Currently, students that have a physical impairment and cannot climb stairs within the school; have to be carried by their teachers to the classrooms on the second floor. After the build of the elevator, all students will have the ability to move around with ease. We will provide pictures after the building begins on the elevator!
Again, thank you for your kind gift. These children are beyond grateful.
