FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
WE BELIEVE IN A WORLD
WHERE EVERY GIRL CAN LEARN
Research indicates that children of educated women are more likely to have a better education and attain benefits of education both for themselves and society at large. In fact it is shown that an educated mother have a positive impact up to five generations on their family.
The EWT Fund was organized to provide financial assistance to academically successful but financially disadvantaged girls in high school and university.
One of the reasons for the disparity between the education level attained by males and females in Turkey is that lower income families who are confronted with cost of educating their children are more likely to spend their limited resources on educating their sons instead of their daughters.
We are a group of Turkish women who came together in 2014 to fund our passion. Since then, we have worked with individuals, corporations, and charitable organizations who share our passion for educating girls.
Since our start in 2014, we have educated hundreds of girls in Turkey, and have also provided scholarships for Turkish students to complete their university and graduate studies here in the United States.
