In accordance with the protocol that we made with the Istanbul Technical University, we will continue to do these works with them. From our point of view, it is very important for us to send these children to where they are supposed to be, meaning the schools where they can receive the bets theoretical and practical education under the supervision of the university, after receiving two year part time education in this academy.
