Values Education Project covers orphans in 23 provinces
We meet not only orphan children’s material needs but also their spiritual needs.
Turkey 18.05.2012

As part of its orphan care efforts since it was founded, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has been materializing projects to contribute to orphan children’s education and future, considering their both material and spiritual needs. To this end, book sets composed of 75 different books were distributed to 1835 orphan children in 23 provinces across Turkey with Values Education Project. 

Prepared in accordance with educational programs involving orphan children that are supported regularly in IHH Sponsor Family System, the book sets will be interpreted and critiqued in reading groups under the supervision of voluntary educators. The books were selected by experts in the fields considering the age and education level of the children and were provided with contributions from Erdem Publications.
