Being the first private school, established by a non-governmental organization, Darussafaka Society has been providing education with full scholarship to children, whose mothers or fathers are not alive, financial status is insufficient and who are successful, starting from the 1st grade of the secondary school to the graduation from the high school, in boarding school and college level in English since 1863. Darussafaka aims to become one of the most respected and best schools both in Turkey and in the world, that provide quality education to underprivileged and talented fatherless and/or motherless children. Furthermore, Darussafaka aims to raise leaders who are life-long learners, self-confident, modern and socially conscious by providing equal opportunity in education.
Overall at Darussafaka, there are nearly 1000 students from different provinces of Turkey. Darussafaka works toward closing the achievement gap in Turkey by ensuring equal access to education. Every year, fourth grade students who lost one or both parents can enter the Darussafaka Entrance Exam and this year the exam will be held on May 30, 2021, in 28 different provinces of Turkey.Those who successfully pass the exam will have the right to begin their education at the Darussafaka Schools in September 2021, on a full scholarship and full boarding status.
We would like to kindly inform you that Darussafaka Society receives no state funding. In addition to all educational expenditures, student’s daily needs such as clothing, accommodation, nutrition and health services are all covered only by your donations to the Society.
In that sense, thank you once again for making these accomplishments possible and sharing in our mission to create "equal opportunity in education” in Turkey.
