Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Turkey has been a cradle and bridge for many civilizations, inherited traditions and cultures of earlier civilizations, created her own culture and contributed in this respect to other countries and peoples. It is natural for others to show an interest in this rich culture and attractive location. Awareness is the prerequisite of becoming interested. As a matter of fact, promotional activities strive not only to facilitate communication, to eradicate prejudices, to provide accurate information and a positive image, but also to cultivate awareness. We believe that cultural relations strengthen mutual understanding among countries, create an appropriate platform for joint action and by creating networks play an essential role in achieving success in the exercise of public diplomacy.

We made several activities to found children’s leadership ability . We searched about famous leaders around the World . Tayyip Erdogan is our projects’ model leader with his character , his helpfulnes sand tolerativeness towards neighbours also with his ‘mediatorship’ abilty . Moreover, he is a culture ambassador . We found pictures and videos about this issue . We realized that our students’ leadership abilities and self confidence increased and they recognized that leadership is an important part of World politics .
