The Social Investment Programme consists of different activities designed for different segments of stakeholders. The Social Investment Programme is carried out in two components: Rapid Impact Projects aimed at meeting basic needs and capacity building, and Income Generating Projects that generate long-term, tangible outputs and income through sustainable activities.

Purpose of the Analysis

Elaborating the social change realised through the projects implemented and stakeholder dialogue created thanks in particular to the two pillars the program focuses on: regional development, and upcycling and recycling.

Turkish Grameen Microfinance Program (TGMP)

Since its establishment in 2003, TGMP has provided a total of 178717 women with microcredits worth 928 million TL, and paved the way for them to participate in working life as productive individuals. The material, moral and business gains of the women who benefitted from the microcredits have provided further prosperity to their own lives, their families, the education of their children and their close circles such as their neighbours.

The microfinance fund of 120 million TL, distributed to 50 thousand low-income women in 2019, is financed through donations and repayments from the women benefitting from the programme. At this point, it is vital for the sustainability of the programme to measure the impact of TGMP’s various loans, its model that makes its users successful as well as other services on women, other stakeholders and society in order to determine the economic value of this impact.

Purpose of the Analysis

To concretely demonstrate the effectiveness of the model in the fight against poverty over the last 20 years, to contribute to the management of the programme.

Girls on the Soccer Field Academy

Within Kızlar Sahada Akademi, a one-week camp was organised in order to introduce girls aged 10-12 to football, to empower them with team spirit, and to raise awareness that football is a sport that everyone can enjoy. During the camp, the girls were introduced to new experiences in culture and arts through seminars and workshops. The scope of the project has been expanded through cooperation with ACEV (Mother Child Education Foundation) by bringing the girls’ parents together via parent programmes.

Purpose of the Analysis

To demonstrate concretely that football is an effective tool for gender equality and to expand operations by transforming the practice into a social enterprise.

Adım Adım

Adım Adım, established in 2008, is the first platform to promote charity runs in Turkey.

Adım Adım, which brings together donors and non-governmental organisations, has an operation that does not touch money.

Purpose of the Analysis
