Improving the quality of education in rural schools in Turkey


Founded in 2016, KODA is on a mission to provide quality education in rural schools in Turkey. Mostly referred to in context of their deprivation, these schools offer a platform to reach disadvantaged children and families.

KODA’s three strategic objectives are:
1. Develop exemplary educational practices for rural schools
2. Empower rural school teachers
3. Create an expanding community, fit to pioneer change in rural schools.

KODA’s First Step Toward Village Schools program is available at 15 universities and aims to prepare teachers for their work in rural areas through knowledge sharing and onsite workshops.

KODA’s Teacher Communities program allows teachers in various regions to share their experience, creating local networks.

In addition to supporting these programs, Dalyan helps to fund KODA’s Social Impact Measurement project.
