The European Parliament hosts Civil Society from Turkey
The work of the NGOs is the cornerstone of all social efforts and deserves our full support. Our exhibition brings together civil society organisations focusing on various fields with outstanding stories. Join us to meet these civil society actors from Turkey and get an insight to the work that they are doing. Christos Stylianides, Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid, will deliver the opening speech on January 8th at 17:30.


Surviving thanks to donations of people who are “rich in their heart”

One of the most esteemed Darüşşafaka donors is Zübeyde Hanım, the mother of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey. She chose to donate to Darüşşafaka in 1921, during the Turkish War of Independence, which is a big honour for the Society.


Darüşşafaka Residences is a unique donation model. A new home for elderly people creates a new future for our children. By making a one-time donation, individuals over 65 years of age can choose to live a healthy, safe and happy life at Darüşşafaka Residences and create a bright future for our children. There are currently four Darüşşafaka Residences in Turkey.

Thanks to the support of thousands of people who are “rich in their heart”, Darüşşafaka is able to continue to fulfill its objective. In 2017, Mr. Mehmet Ateş, a porter from Kocaeli province of Turkey made a donation to Darüşşafaka and afterwards visited the school and met with our students.
