Mission Statement

Our mission is achieving equal opportunity in education in Turkey.  To achieve this goal TEF provides scholarships to middle & high school students from low income families so they can continue their education.  The scholarships motivate children's families so that the children are not forced to work at the expense of their education.  The scholarships are given on a need and merit basis, with no religious or ethnic criteria. TEF also provides educational materials to schools in rural and gecekondu (slum) areas of Turkey.

Funding Needs

This year in Turkey 220,000 children, aged 6-13, are not attending school according to the offical statistics of the Elementary School Admisntration. 130,000 of them are girls.  Furthermore, many among those who gradute from elementary school drop out of school and do not continue their secondary or high school education due to finacial hardships.  We at TEF believe that education is the key for a vibrant democracy with mass participation and economic development.  Therefore we extend a helping hand to underpriviliged chidlren to keep them in school.  Donations of any amount are welcome.  An average scholarship per student is $300.
