Established in 1972, YÖRET Foundation is a rights-based non-governmental organization working

towards child advocacy. As YÖRET, our objective is to support education and raising of children as

well as young people in order to elevate life quality of society through consistently executing

educational and service projects. Besides running training programs so as to enable protection of

children’s rights by everyone and to spread non-violent communication, the Foundation designs

projects with a view to spurring human development and raising generations of people with

awareness of rights and democracy, and at peace with themselves and others around them. The

Foundation’s Club of Young Voluntaries encourages engagement of children and young people, apart

from disseminating civil society and volunteering culture. The foundation, also realizes projects and

trainings for children, parents and the related professionals in order to raise awareness about

children’s rights, and to help children to protect themselves against abuse and violence.
