We are supporting our friends in Darüşşafaka Schools in their education

As the Education for Everyone Platform, we support our friends who are studying in Darüşşafaka Schools, which has been providing equality of opportunity in education since 1863.

By raising awareness, we invite everyone to donate to Darüşşafaka.

About Darüşşafaka: Darüşşafaka 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 "equality of opportunity in education." Our 156-year old Society, whose role is to raise funds via donations to finance the school, amended its statutes on 14 April 2012 and opened the doors of Darüşşafaka Schools to also include students who have lost their mothers. Today, Darüşşafaka creates a better future for needy, talented students with one or no parents. Inviting students at the age of ten, the Society provides full scholarship and boarding from a student’s fifth year through to the end of high school. Given an opportunity for a world-class education, students are able to embark on a new life as self confident, thinking, inquiring, and curious individuals who feel responsible for the community.

In addition to all educational expenditures, student’s daily needs such as clothing, accommodation, food, and health services are all covered by donations to the Society. Darüşşafaka Society receives no state funding. 

In 2015, Darüşşafaka Society, which was granted "Special Consultancy Status" by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), is also a member of UN Global Compact, one of the largest social responsibility projects of the United Nations.
