Dorm Life Program
The girls' dormitories built within the scope of the "Daddy Send Me to School" campaign are resided by girls who dont have high schooling opportunities in their villages. Conditions for female students in the age group of 14 to 18 are generally similar.
With the Dorm Life Program, the objective is to create a model that will enable girls to use their time in the dorms as efficiently as possible.
The starting point of this model is "ensure the participation of girls in the society as productive individuals", which is one of the main objectives of the "Daddy Send Me to School" campaign conducted by the Aydın Doğan Foundation.
The model, which aims to increase and diversify the life-related knowledge of girls, to contribute to their dreams about the future, and to improve their quality of life, has the objective of reaching these goals by ensuring that the students use the time spent at the dorms in an effective manner.
