2008/04/18 - More Preschools!

Dear UNICEF Friend,

As the Turkish National Committee for UNICEF we have made many important contributions to the education system in Turkey, especially in recent years. Hundreds of thousands of chidren who were not previously attending school, are enrolled in the education system now thanks to the Haydi Kızlar Okula! girls' education campaign. During last year's We're Adding Schools! campaign, which we launched with the NTV channel, we promised to build 100 classrooms in the most needy regions of Turkey. Happily, we have exceeded that goal with the current total of 150 classrooms.
