We have been hard at work trying to find new ways to get the word out about our project. We have reached out to various networks, both in Turkey and the US, trying to determine new strategies. Sadly, our efforts have not yielded strong results, and we need your help to get the word out about this incredibly valuable project.
The kids that come to our activity locations primarily come from disadvantaged backgrounds, with large family sizes, low socioeconomic levels, low educational attainment levels, and a struggling public education. Our locations are a beacon of light in their lives; a stark contrast to their daily lives; colorful, inspiring places where they can be nurtured and encouraged by our rich array of education programs and by their interaction with the big brothers and sisters that are our volunteers.
However, with 72 locations throughout the country (making us the most widespread educational organizaiton after the Ministry of Education), we struggle to find the resources to maintain our locations. This project is important in that it will provide essential resources to provide a quality educational experience for our kids.
