• Country: Turkey

  • Club: Tarabya & Alleben

  • District: 2420 & 2430

As Rotaract Club of Tarabya, we visited Gaziantep, Turkey on 17-19th October. The main purpose of this organization, which was carried out together with Rotaract Club of Alleben from district 2430, was to provide the students with the necessary books to prepare for the university exam and to give them information about the process. High book prices, and especially less resources in Turkey’s Southeast region, students have difficulty to reach these books. Based on this fact, we created an unused book resource for high school students by using social media and our links. We have created this source of approximately 10 packs of books and delivered them to the high school in Gaziantep in the region 2430. Also, we had the chance to experience Gaziantep personally, visiting historical sites such as Zeugma Mosaic Museum, Coppersmiths’ Bazaar and Gaziantep Castle. We tasted the local flavors of Gaziantep and met the local people.
