Since 1969, we ensure each TEF student is funded from 5th through 12th grade. In 2022, we supported 1,150 students in low-income communities across Turkey.
EMPOWER GIRLS AND WOMEN
In 2022, 85% of TEF students are girls; majority of the graduating class has been admitted to an accredited university.
Almost all donations support TEF scholarships. Volunteers keep our operational costs minimal. TEF is awarded GuideStar’s 2020 Seal of Transparency.
