We determined the duration of the project as 12 months. Work on the project continues as planned. One of the goals of the project was to establish revolving fund enterprises in 1000 selected schools and to increase the employability of our graduates by increasing the production and applied education capacity. In addition, it was to increase our capacity to support our students and teachers in terms of their contribution to production. In 1000, only 2020 of our 438 selected schools had revolving funds. In the first 2020 months of 11, these schools increased their production capacity by 42 percent and produced 157 million lira. Our students earned 11 million lira from production, and our teachers 25 million lira. In 2021, we aim to open revolving fund enterprises in our remaining 562 schools. In this context, we will establish two new workshops in each of these schools in 2021. "
