Republic of Turkey - Ministry of National Education
In addition to compulsory courses in the curricula of primary schools, the Ministry of Education aims at running programs in the areas of science, social studies, culture, art and sports, through selective and extra-curricular courses, in order to create confidence and responsibility in primary school students and to create new areas of interest and develop skills. The Ministry of Education also prioritizes the contribution of artistic, sportive and musical activities in students’ academic success and, therefore, encourages cooperation with other organizations in these areas. MoNE and TEGV run mutual programs in order to promote and activate the works in these fields. A cooperation protocol has been signed between the two parties that enables primary education institutions that are located in the cities and districts where TEGV actively operates to make use of TEGV’s sites, programs and volunteer activities.
