Darüssafaka Society was founded in 1863 with the aim of providing equality of opportunity in education to needy, talented children who had lost their fathers. Since then, it has maintained its presence with this mission of "equal opportunity in education".
Today, the 157 years old Society creates a better future for high-potential students who lost one or both parents and are from financially disadvantaged communities. At its school, the Society provides high-quality formal education to eligible students, starting at fifth grade through to the end of high school. Overall at Darüssafaka, there are approximately 1.000 students from all over Turkey.
Darüssafaka Society has made decisions due to COVID-19 pandemic affecting the whole world lately. Now that we have received a more definitive guidance from the Ministry of Education (MEB), we have decided to start online/remote instruction for all our students for safety purposes. We have improved the digital infrastructure of educational institution for remote learning. Afterwards, we have met our students' internet package and tablet needs. Our effort is to make them feel as if they study together in the classrooms of Darüssafaka, with the same enthusiasm they always feel.
We would like to express our gratitude for our dear donors, who have been supporting our mission for 157 years now. Thanks to you, we have been raising conscious individuals who are to create a better world.
