Turning problems into opportunities and solutions, and being the driving force of the society... As agents of change, you will play a major role in the economic and social development of our country. I can see this excitement and this dynamism in all of your eyes, and I am filled with hope for our shared future.’ Stating that Aydın Doğan Foundation supports girls' equal participation and retention in education with the motto “Strong Girls, Strong Tomorrows” and stands by them to help them fulfill their dreams, Yalçındağ added: ’Education is one of the best ways to empower girls and women and help them achieve their full potential. Through education, it is possible to create a more equal and fairer society for all... This is why it is so valuable for our young girls to continue their education and achieve higher levels of success. At the Aydın Doğan Foundation, we work to ensure that our girls assume a leadership role in all areas of social life and we strongly support them.’
