EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL CHILDREN
Our Home Istanbul Project was launched in the new municipality period in order to ensure that children throughout the city have equal opportunities. In this context, the education of children in all areas, their basic needs, women's employment, and contributions to family education and development were considered.
The training programs were created on the basis of raising individuals who are self-confident, happy, sensitive to nature, respectful to human rights and freedoms, establishing positive relations with their environment, participating and asking questions.
NEIGHBORHOOD RELATIONS ARE STRENGTHENING
In addition to supporting parents in many ways, the project also enables women to easily participate in work and social life. At the same time, safe spaces are created where children can live by strengthening the relationship with teachers, families and neighborhoods.
