Nesin Foundation was founded in Catalca/Istanbul in 1973 by famous Turkish author Aziz
Nesin. It is a big family with 40 children. Children who are deprived of educational
opportunities come to the foundation at the age of 0-12. They live here until they stand on
their own feet while attending schools close by. The foundation provides children with all their
needs and additional education and activities. The main objectives of the Foundation are to
ensure that the children will grow up as beneficial individuals to the society who will produce
more than they consume, who are with social responsibility, confident, self-sacrificing, who
continuously improve themselves, who adopt a critical point of view at themselves and the
whole world. Nesin Foundation and its subsidiaries are being managed by former graduates
increasingly.
