SOCIAL PROJECT SUPPORTING FEMALE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
The Propeller Club – Port of İstanbul (2023-2025) has initiated a cooperation project with the Turkish University Women’s Association (TÜKD) to contribute to the education of female university students.
TÜKD, founded (1949) by the first and leading university graduates of the Republic of Türkiye, is one of the oldest associations in Türkiye. TÜKD, provides economic support as well as guidance to female university students from low-income families, with an extraordinary success rate at the annual university exam.
The female students come from very different social backgrounds and study at different universities. Their common characteristic is that they are all successful young talents. We believe that in the near future they will take part in the business world or in the social and political decision-making mechanisms of our country.
As Propeller Club we have developed a project to support these young female talents with a corporate-social touch, while they are approaching to the entry level of professional world.
We host a female university student at each luncheon event. While the students have the opportunity to introduce themselves to an audience of business people, they also explore opportunities for internship and job offers.
At Propeller Club, we believe it is our duty to contribute to our society. As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Türkiye, success of Turkish women in every field is definitely our hope and aspiration for a prosperous future.
