Social Responsibility
Limak Foundation

Limak Foundation

Limak Education Culture and Health Foundation has been established in 2016, in order to collect all social responsibility and aid projects that are being conducted by Limak Group of Companies for years, and ensure their continuation in a more corporate and effective manner.

One the most important projects of the Foundation in the field of education is the Engineer Girls of Turkey, which has been started as a comprehensive and long-term social responsibility project initiated in 2015 in order to support our women to take more part in the field of engineering. With this project, school girls who currently are or will study engineering are supported from many aspects during their education, in order to reveal the engineers among us, to ensure that our girls take more part in this field and to invest in the bright future of Turkey. The Engineer Girls of Turkey Project is a project that starts with encouraging school girls from all four corners of our country to study engineering, and continues with a variety of activities to support them.

With the Gülseren Özdemir Outstanding Achievement Scholarship Program, which has been implemented in 2016 by the Limak Foundation, it is aimed to contribute in the education and development of the youth who are successfully studying in secondary education despite their financial difficulties.

Another project that we support in the field of education is the MISTI (MIT Science and Technology Initiatives) – Bosphorus International Research, Education and Support Program which has been formed with the objective to carry out collective research projects between the faculty members and students of Bosphorus University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It is aimed to contribute in the research infrastructure of Turkey and pioneer in the emergence of new projects with the program, for which financial support will be provided for three years.

The Limak Chats, which is yet another project that has been initiated by the Foundation in 2016, are aimed to contribute in the development of the society in the field of education through a platform that hosts speakers, including academicians, authors and artists.

The objective of the Foundation is based on the fact that the superiority of our society can be transformed into a larger and more definitive power in our rapidly globalizing world, by transforming our young and dynamic potential into a qualified human force. With the awareness that the most valuable investment to achieve this objective is the investment made in humans, the Foundation builds its activities as based on the principle of raising generations who are education focused, powerful, contemporary, respectful to the universal values of a reputable society, and will contribute in the solution of social and economic problems.
