Project Report | Jul 27, 2022

Dear donor,

As we start the second decade of our project, this year we aim to reach 1000-1200 mentor-menti pairs from all CYDD branches that give university scholarships.

An important decision taken this year is to have as many as possible mentors from among CYDD alumni. The prerequisite for being a mentor is a work experience of minimum 3 years and priority will be given to CYDD graduates who have been in the workplace for at least three years. We hope to have some young mentors who previously were menti students in the first years of the same project.

Another breakthrough in the project is the implementation of an impact analysis study. During the first ten years of the project, internal assessments and evaluations were regularly made with questionnaires sent to both menti students and their mentors. At the end of our tenth year we have started a more thorough impact analysis study in collaboration with Ms Kizbu who is the Director of Independent Evaluation Laboratory at Koç University Istanbul. The results of this first survey will be available by mid August and we hope to share it with you in our next report.

We thank you for supporting our project and look forward to your donations.

Kindly yours,
