Meltem Gocer Fund

Meltem Gocer Fund

In memory of our beloved friend, we established Turkey Mozaik Foundation Meltem Göçer Fund in August 2019.  We are grateful to be the recipient of valuable contributions from her family and friends who cherished her life and thankful to her family for choosing to support our mission which Meltem found close to her heart. Jointly with her family, we chose two charities to support:

Association of Visually Impaired in Education

Music for Peace Foundation (Barış için Müzik) is an organisation that has been working with children since 2005. In the decrepit Edirnekapi neighbourhood of Istanbul, Music for Peace aims to positively transform the lives of children and their families and communities through the practice of classical music.

Bilim Kahramanlari Derneği

Science Heroes Association
(Bilim Kahramanları Derneği)

Science Heroes Association’s mission is to promote science and scientific thinking at an early age for children and young people by using innovative methods. The association works to overcome several problems such as the lack of high-quality education and technological infrastructure, the lack of role models in the scientific fields, or the inadequate introduction of existing role models, the common belief that science and mathematics are difficult, and the stereotype that science, technology or mechanical works should often be done by men.

Association for Young People under State Protection and Foster Families
(Koruma Altında Yetişen Gençler ve Koruyucu Aile Derneği-KALBEN)

KALBEN aims to strengthen the bond between children and young people under state protection and foster families, ensuring their access to equal rights and opportunities. KALBEN carries out activities to promote the Foster Family Model in Turkey and provides legal and psycho-social support to foster families before and after the process. KALBEN also works to increase solidarity among young people under protection.
