Our history of engagement in Turkey goes back to 1989. We had partnership relations with universities like Boğaziçi, Ankara, Istanbul Bilgi, Yeditepe and Kadir Has. We have also supported projects of organizations like Mother and Child Foundation (ACEV), Turkish Education Volunteers Foundation (TEGV), Under the Same Roof with Children Association (ÇAÇA), Tarlabasi Community Center, Women Center Foundation (KAMER), Developmentalist Pediatrics Association and Child Developmentalists Association. We have supported or partnered with government institutions like Cukurova Development Agency, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Family and Social Planning.
We currently focus on Istanbul, where our Urban95 programme is working with over 15 partners to strengthen the capacities of four district municipalities in areas such as data driven decision making through mapping, parent support through home visits and developing/improving green public spaces.
