Chairman of the Sabanci Foundation Board of Trustees, Ms. Guler Sabanci compared social development projects to blossoming seeds: “Some of the projects provided a new disability care training curriculum to public education centers while some others created a new youth center model for Turkey. Some worked to prevent early childhood marriages whereas some worked for the education right of students with disabilities. These projects have collectively touched the lives of 60 thousand people in 70 provinces, yet we must work even harder and sow many more seeds for sustainable social change”
