Araz
÷zel Eğitim (formerly SevinÁ Abla School)


Relief painting prepared by children at the SevinÁ Abla School

If you would be interested in owning this beautiful 2016 painting prepared by talented children of SevinÁ Abla School in Adana, Turkey and donated to Arkadașlar, please contact Sandy Anderson.  More about the school and its students below.


Sept. 2009 Letter from Sevinc Abla to Arkadaslar:

Dear Sandy, 

It made me very happy to receive an e-mail message from you and to see that you are still interested in my school.

I haven't been able to renovate my website since 2004. Nevertheless, it made an important contribution to our success with disadvantaged children in the Mediterranean region. During the Olympics, it won a gold medal. Also, we opened exhibitions of handwork in many of Turkey's provinces. Our school even has its own Facebook page with new photos.

Twelve of our hearing-impaired students were admitted to university and 80 of our students were able to continue their studies at regular schools. Forty of our primary school students participate in "assimilation" programs at local elementary schools. I'm very proud of their successes.  And our workshop activities continue.

We would be extremely pleased to have you once again as our guests at the school.

Best regards, 

SevinÁ


 



SevinÁ Abla ÷zel Eğitim İlkokulu

With encouragement and personal background information from Al Nekimken (T-13), Arkadaslar began to support the Sevinc Abla Special Education School in Adana.  Sevinc Abla is a non-profit school with some government support that works with students and their handicaps to prepare them for self-sufficiency and successful living.  The students are elementary age and learn academic subjects as well as skills and crafts.  We contributed $700 in 1993 and $1000 in 1994.  This money, in part, published woodworking tools, which were probably used to make the wooden plaque displayed by both Sevinc Abla and several of the students (below) and sent to us in late 1994.
