Activities For Families
Activities for Families: Activities for children also include families. The families with low-income and with problem children are guided to relevant institutions. The families especially mothers are informed with trainings on such as literacy, maternal and infant health. Visits to households and parents’ meetings are made. When needed (such as financial difficulty, disability) the families are guided to relevant institutions (such as Social Assistance and Solidarity Foundations, Social Services). The health trainings are carried out in cooperation with different institutions and organisations.
Education Activities: For 7-14 age group, various trainings (study groups, support for school courses, courses for placement tests, computer lessons) are given.
The primary students need computers and library for their homework and research projects. However, limited internet and library facilities in their home and in cities and towns they reside in, prevent them conducting research. Development Centres enable students to conduct research by using internet through computers and to use books and encyclopaedias as sources in the libraries located in there. So that children are able to fulfil their homework in efficient way as well as benefit from technology by accessing to every information from all around the world.
