Unfortunately, this project was not successful

There are huge inequalities in access to education in North Cyprus. The project aims to enable and empower children from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds in Turkish Cypriot families.

Children growing in rural areas are often poor with limited access to resources. Growing up in social and economic depravity has a huge knock on effect on their self-confidence.

The project aims to enable and empower children from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds in Turkish Cypriot families.

As part of the project, schools in rural North Cyprus will be visited and empowering talks will be delivered. Parents will be educated about the resources and how to access them. Talented children who are unable to afford education will be identified and mentored. Mentors will be chosen from successful people who are coming from similar backgrounds.
