The Social Awareness Projects (TDP/Toplumsal Duyarlılık Projeleri) student volunteer organization held its opening meeting of the spring semester on February 5. TDP welcomed new members and introduced them to the group’s ongoing volunteer projects. This semester’s crowd was much larger than usual, with new members numbering nearly 600.
TDP has conducted community service activities for more than 20 years, in line with its motto, “What about being part of the solution, instead of the problem?”
The organization was founded after the Marmara earthquake in 1999, with the objective of providing help to victims of the quake. Later, TDP started its first ongoing project, the Voluntary Teaching Project (Gönüllü Eğitim Projesi), in order to help educate children from underdeveloped neighborhoods in Ankara.
Ahmet Selman (IE/III) and Şimal Yurtsever (ELIT/III), TDP’s general coordinators, note that the organization welcomes all who wish to volunteer.
