Republic of Türkiye- 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.

UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is ‘the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative’. The Compact is a voluntary initiative supporting sustainable development and good corporate citizenship applications, and is an entity based on internationally accepted principles. The main objective of the UN Global Compact, established in 2000, is to develop the ten universal principles covering the areas of human rights, work standards, environment and corruption. By 2007, 700 international non-governmental organizations, in addition to 3,000 participating companies, from nearly 100 countries had joined the UN Global Compact. In order to leave a better and more sustainable world for our children, TEGV signed the UN Global Compact in October 2007, and we vary our works in this regard. Moreover, TEGV has become a Member of the Board of Directors of the Global Compact Türkiye this year. We continue carrying out extensive awareness and communication activities. We organize trainings related to children’s rights to enhance their awareness about their human rights. We also organize activities for refugee children, in cooperation with other non-governmental organizations.

We help our employees develop personally and professionally, acting in compliance with all legal and ethical values on work standards. With respect to the environment, we switched to Green IT and re-cycling practices in both education of our children and our business processes. In 2009, we published the Progress Report required by the signatories of the UN Global Compact at the end of the first 2 years. In our report, we calculated our Carbon Footprint for 2008 in order to reduce the carbon emissions resulting from our activities. Even though our results were below Türkiye standards - which is good news -, we will look for ways to further reduce our emissions as a Foundation and to make our carbon footprint even smaller.

Adım Adım (Step by Step) Initiative

The Adım Adım (Step by Step) Initiative consists of amateur athletes working professionally in various companies and organizations. The main objective is, through sports activities, to introduce needy people and organizations to people and organizations willing to help. Amateur athletes participating in various sports events, organized in Türkiye and in other countries around the world, make a call for peace for the NGOs that the Adım Adım (Step by Step) Initiative has decided to support and direct the donations from the donors to the relevant NGO, before and after such events, and turn that sporting event into a benefit for society. The runners of the Adım Adım (Step by Step) Initiative ran to support our Foundation in the Runtalya and Eurasia Marathons in 2009, contributing to the education of 955 children. In 2010, they adopted the Mardin Savur and Mardin Midyat Learning Units for 3 years, each. In 2011, the runners of the Adım Adım (Step by Step) Initiative who joined Runtalya and Eurasia Marathons helped raise donations from about 2,000 donors, and so financed the rising of a new TEGV Firefly.

National Volunteering Committee

The National Volunteering Committee (NVC) is a strategic advisory body working for the recognition, strengthening and spreading volunteerism. Supported by TEGV, as a founder member, along with around 30 different institutions, the National Volunteering Committee was first launched in 2012 as a UN initiative. During the period when NVC remained as an initiative, three main strategies were set as targets: realizing the contributions of volunteering to society, including volunteers into policies and strategies and growing stronger for greater variety. The Committee was officially established with a meeting that took place in the UN’s Ankara office on 24April 2013.

NVC is respectful of universal fundamental rights and freedoms, observes the benefits of volunteers and volunteering, and acts with a vision, in unity and cooperation. Here is a list of the areas that NVC intends to contribute to:

  • Growing the number of volunteers from every segment of society, and spreading volunteering
  • Establishing policies that support volunteering and improve the legal framework for volunteering
  • Enhancing visibility, social awareness and support for volunteering
  • Improving the working conditions of volunteers in favor of the volunteer rights
  • Increasing the capacities of volunteering actors to work with volunteers
  • Enhancing communication and cooperation among sectors
  • Collecting data, conducting research and preparing publications in the field of volunteering, and ensuring cooperation among different stakeholders in line with this goal.
