Social Responsibility Projects

“CONCERT FOR BENEFIT OF THE TURKISH FOUNDATION OF HOMELESS CHILDREN”

A concert of Tenor Berk Özberk has been organized for May 9, 2014, for the benefit of the Foundation for Homeless Children under the leadership of the students of Irmak Schools Interact Club and with support of MNU Club. Proceeds to be generated from ticket sales will be shared with the Foundation for Homeless Children.

“SUPPORT OF VISUALLY IMPAIRED CHILDREN WITH 3RD IRMAK BIENNIAL”

Our school brought our students together with a group of students from Türkan Sabancı Elementary School for the Visually Impaired under the 3rd Biennial held this year. Students of Irmak Schools collaboratively produced some works with their visually impaired peers. The high level of compatibility among the students who met for the first time also attracted attention of educationists. The works which were the product of the highly emotional encounter will put on sale through auction soon and proceeds to be generated will shed light on the future of the visually impaired. In addition, acoustic musical instruments will be donated to Türkan Sabancı Preschool for the Visually Impaired as support of books produced electronically will be extended to their library again under the project.

“BLUE CAP CAMPAIGN”

“Blue Cap Campaign” organized by us to support our school’s target of raising environmentally sensitive individuals and donate wheel chairs to the Turkish Association for the Victims of Paraplegia has been successfully maintained with the support of our OAB members. In addition to our students, OAB members and representatives also contributed to the campaign directly by collecting caps.

“TECHNOLOGICAL WASTES”

The Information Technology Club comprising Grades 3 and 4 students of our school has launched a campaign to enable recycling of depleted or non-reusable electronic wastes. Technological wastes picked up by an environmental disposal company, Akademi, will provide contributions to a project to be jointly carried out with WWF Wild Life Preservation Foundation.

“ONE BOOK, ONE MORE HOPE”

A book donation campaign has been launched by our school for Kilis Merkez Kocabeyli Elementary School and Public Library. All the books collected have been sent to Kilis.

“SHARE YOUR LEGO”

All the Lego sets collected under the Lego Campaign launched by our school in order to meet needs of children aged 8 to 14, who cannot afford to buy them, have been delivered to the Association of Support of Contemporary Life (Çağdaş Yaşamı Destekleme Derneği).

“NO COLD LITTLE FEET”

All the shoes which have been collected under the campaign launched for students of Mardin Dara Elementary School and Kilis Merkez Kocabeyli Elementary School have been delivered to the students of the relevant schools.

“WHAT ABOUT FLAVORING EDUCATION OF THE NEEDY?”

Second hand technological tools, books and stationery in usable condition have been collected in an effort to extend a helping hand to the needy students of Günyazı Village Elementary School and Kevenli Village Elementary School and such materials collected have been sent to the relevant schools.

“LET IRMAK BE OUR VOICE”

This is a social responsibility project carried out by us in collaboration with the Turkish Association for the Visually Impaired.

Under this project, our Elementary School and High School students contribute to production of audio books by reading texts upon selection of any of literary types such as stories, novels, poems, tales, etc., on a voluntary basis.

“HOLD MY HAND”

Students handed over the charity materials picked up and funds raised through charity sales to the relevant Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s). Later, a large number of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) including AKUT, GREENPEACE, UNICEF, 112 ACİL, MAFOM, National Federation for the People with Hearing Impairment, Association for Support of Needy Children (“Umut”), Turkish National Paralympics  Committee, TESYEV, ÇEKÜL, TODEV and Aziz Nesin Foundation took part in the exhibition prepared by children for them, giving them an opportunity to express themselves to the parents.

The project, “Hold My Hand”, launched in cooperation with the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and Grade 5 students of our school also managed to attract interest of artists. Famous thespians Füsun and Sevinç Erbulak and Şeyla Halis, Fatih Portakal, producer and presenter of Fox TV Program “Çalar Saat” and Engin Altan Düzyatan, a famous presenter, are a few of them extending support to the project.  

“NO COLD FEET”

A group of Grade 11 students in our school, who are inspired by a news article appearing in newspapers, has successfully implemented a brilliant campaign as part of their decision to give a helping hand to their peers suffering from a recent major earthquake in Van.

Our students setting out on their campaign with the slogan: “A pair of boots is priced for TL 25 but the children’s happiness is priceless” managed to raise funds at a stand organized by them to buy 170 pairs of boots.

The boots purchased with the funds raised at the campaign were sent to the children living at the Villages of Çiçekli and Güllüçimen via Van Branch Office of the Foundation for Advancement of Atatürk’s Ideas.

“ASSISTANCE TO ADIYAMAN KAHTA KARAMAN AND KAHTA ZEYNAN SCHOOLS”

LARGE numbers of school aids, stationery and toys have been collected under a charity campaign which has been achieved through involvement of parents, teachers and students thanks to an organization of Irmak Schools School Family Union and delivered to students in Kahta Karaman and Zeynan Elementary School in Adıyaman.

“FROM ARMS TO ARTS”

The starting point of this campaign is the fact that individual armament is a very important problem threatening the “right to life” and that a limited number of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) carry out  efforts to build awareness on the issue; thus, it has been considered necessary to ensure involvement of students in such efforts “which would encourage them and lead them to take action, question, have self transformation and develop self awareness” rather than being content with what is available.

The work has been carried out with students selected from Grades 9, 10 and 11. The teacher of each department in charge of the project provided guidance to students over how the works related to their area would be conducted. The works conducted were selected by Sabancı University Conference on Best Models in Education from among 1097 works, thus qualifying for display among 109 Best Models.
