Since 1989, continuing its activities to reach contemporary people and society through contemporary
education, the Association for the Support of Contemporary Living has worked to ensure that all
children and youth in Turkey, especially girls, have equal opportunities in education. Acting with the idea
of "Be a part of the solution, not the problem", ÇYDD has provided scholarship support to 130.000
students to date with the scholarship projects it has developed for socioeconomically disadvantaged
students. ÇYDD, which carries out studies on women's rights, gender equality, and environmental
awareness in addition to education, maintains the values of the Republic of Turkey and its struggles to
preserve the secular and democratic social structure.
ÇYDD aims to help young people gain 21st-century competencies with its education support projects
and thus contributes to the students' becoming contemporary individuals in the future under the
guidance of science and reason.
