Recently the Master Franchise of High Touch High Tech in Turkey, Eglenceli Bilim, was selected as the content developer of a major project of TEGV. TEGV is a major non-governmental organization focusing on children education in Turkey. The project will last 3-5 years to promote math and science skills of 40,000 children in Turkey with the support of one of the big holdings of the country.
Educational Volunteers Foundation of Turkey (TEGV) was founded in January 23, 1995, with the aim of “supporting the basic education provided by the government” by a group of industrialists, managers and academics lead by Suna Kıraç, who believed by their whole hearts that education comes before everything else. The objective of Educational Volunteers is to create and implement educational programs and extracurricular activities for children aged 6-14, so that they can acquire skills, knowledge and attitudes supporting their development as rational, responsible, self-confident, peaceable, inquisitive, cognizant, creative individuals, who are against any kind of discrimination, respect diversity and are committed to the basic principles of the Turkish Republic. TEGV implements unique educational programs, with the support of its volunteers, in the Education Parks, Learning Units, Firefly Mobile Learning Units, City Representative Offices and in primary schools through the “Support for Social Activities Protocol”. TEGV uses personal and corporate donations to fund its programs.
Reach of NGO : 60,000 volunteers, 550,000 donators and 2 million children…
The project is developed to help children’s math & science skills in Turkey where PISA scores have shown that Turkey is 44th country among 65 countries in math and science and getting worse throughout the years. The project will take 3-5 years to reach 40,000 children in 37 different cities of Turkey. 3 different layers of children will be targeted (1-2 grade, 3-4 grade and 5-7 grade) with creative math & science programs to stimulate the learning process of students. The programs will be developed together with the experts and delivered through the volunteer trainers of TEGV in the targeted cities. Programs will be supported with e-learning modules as well as hands on learning modules to combine both learning models.
Master Franchise of High Touch High Tech in Turkey, Eglenceli Bilim, was selected as the expert to develop science programs for the project. Eglenceli Bilim will create the content of the science programs in line with the content of public education by using its global know-how on current experimental programs. After creating the content and details of the execution, Eglenceli Bilim will train the volunteers of TEGV to further help to the deployment of programs to targeted children. The project results will also be measured through pre and post researches to understand the contribution of the programs to the skills of children.
