Challenge

Due to financial and cultural barriers, many children in Turkey lack the opportunity to access quality education. Children who have lost one of their parents need extra financial support and care. Darussafaka aims to provide "equality of opportunity in education" to disadvantaged students from all over Turkey so that they can become self-confident, happy and successful individuals in the society and realize their dreams.

Solution

Darussafaka works toward closing the achievement gap in Turkey by ensuring equal access to a high quality education. The Society is able to achieve this goal by offering full scholarships to all of its eligible students, thanks to the continued support of its donors. Every year, all eligible 5th grade students across the country are invited to apply to Darussafaka's annual admissions exam. Approximately 2,000 students take the Darussafaka exam every year and 120 students are admitted.

Long-Term Impact

Throughout the past 158 years, Darussafaka educated many noteworthy individuals in our society. Many Darussafaka alumni hold academic and executive positions in the public and private sector, both in Turkey and abroad.Thanks to the continued support and commitment of its donors, Darussafaka will continue to invest in the next generation of enlightened, self-confident and socially responsible Turkish leaders for centuries to come.
