Contribution to Education

We believe that education is one of the most important elements of social development and we aim to increase inclusivity and to equally provide this to all segments of society.

We provide support with our projects to contribute to education in line with
SDG-3 and SDG-17 purposes which refer to Quality Education and Partnership for the Goals of the United Nations.

Şekerbank cares for supported the primary education of the younger generations for the past 40 years with Şeker Çocuk Magazine. For this purpose, we reach hundreds of village schools in Anatolia, childcare centers under the Child Welfare Agency and hundreds of thousands of children across Turkey via hospitals with 238 Şekerbank branches in 67 cities and 90 peripheral districts with Şeker Çocuk Magazine published for the past 40 years. Our quarterly Şeker Çocuk Magazine is also published in Braille Alphabet since 2010 and delivered to schools and rehabilitation centers that offer education to visually impaired individuals.

We continue to supply books for children without sufficient financial sources and toys to pre-school classes under the “All Children Should Be Happy!” project since 2010 with the collaboration of Araştırma Destek Eğitim Foundation (ADEV) and Şeker Çocuk Magazine. Under this project, we collect new or old books and toys via All Children Should Be Happy! stands in Şekerbank branches and general directorate buildings across Turkey and delivers these toys and books to individuals who need these toys and books via ADEV volunteers.

Şekerbank supports education contribution projects and financing needs under the purposes of SKA-3 and SKA-17, expressing the titles of United Nations Quality Education and Partnerships for Purposes.

Şekerbank is delighted to have broken new ground in the banking sector by building schools in five communities where there were no schools for the first time in 1955. Şekerbank was recognized with a plaque by the Ministry of National Education in 1981 for its innovative and pioneering position in the field of education after constructing 18 schools in various locations of Turkey in a short period.
