I want to contribute to the education of a child for every city of our country.
Vedat Pekak, who will collect donations for the children of TEGV on his journey, says that he aims to meet the education expenses of 81 children for one year:
“This time, I will ride my motorcycle over the outer wall of the map of Turkey that I drew when I was a child in the first years of my education life. This time, I will drive to freedom for our children, who are just at the beginning of their education life and are the assurance of our future. I will remind our children of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's words on this 6 thousand km journey that I will go alone: 'Little ladies, little gentlemen! You are all a rose, star and light of prosperity of the future. You are the ones to smother the country in light. Think about how important and valuable you are and work accordingly. We expect a lot from you.' For TEGV, I want to contribute to the education of a child for every city in our country. One year's education expense for a child is 300 TL. I want to make this long road that I embarked on to undertake the education of 81 children more meaningful with your donations and support.”
