Community Cohesion/Darussafaka Schools

Main Life Skills: Communication, Leadership and Self-confidence

Ambassador: Dogus Ozdemiroglu

About the program: Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul is again joining forces with Darussafaka Schools to develop a tailored eight-week One Team program. Darussafaka Schools provide quality education to underprivileged children whose mothers and/or fathers are deceased. The school’s mission is to raise leaders who are life-long learners, self-confident, modern and socially conscious, by providing equal opportunity in education.

A total of 15 students, male and female, aged 13-16 are involved in the One Team sessions. The entire program practices are based on Senior Team schedule since One Team Ambassador Dogus Ozdemiroglu, who graduated at Darussafaka Schools, wants to be involved at each practice.

Darussafaka’s One Team programme is running from January to mid-March at Ayhan Sahenk Sports Hall, a shared facility between the club and the school. The club is also creating posters around the school campus and the gym to increase awareness of the program among students and fans of the team.
