In addition to being the blue boy of our city, Akçansa is the most important example of the wind of change in our country. As in many other fields, they launched and continue to launch important projects in the field of education in our country. In this context, they are our biggest supporter in our district. “My Neighborhood Project” launched with the cooperation of TOÇEV and Akçansa is one of the best examples to this. I believe this project will be beneficial for raising our children, the guarantee of our future, as healthy individuals, and for parents to establish a better communication with their children and ensure self-motivation.”

Ladik Mayor Nurhan Yapıcı Özel said, “Akçansa has launched an important project with a sense of social responsibility. With “My Neighborhood” project, it is aimed to provide education to our adolescent children, and to improve the communication of our children with their surroundings. Educations to be provided by our specialist psychologists also cover the parents. In other words, it is not only the children who benefit from these educations. Our families share their general questions on the matters which they have hard time in raising their children and which an expert opinion is required for, they get assistance from experts, and get answers to their questions. I would like to congratulate everyone who had a contribution in this. And I would also like to thank Akçansa for bringing together the people in our district with experts.”

In the Akçansa Mobile Education Center, the challenges experienced by the students will be taken into consideration through the conversation and talks under the supervision of TOÇEV’s experts, and then it will continue with the secondary school students and parents.

In the Emotion Awareness educations, topics including “Why do you go to school?”, “How does it feel to study here now?, “Where in your body do you feel this feeling?”, “What are the challenges you experience now”, and “How do you deal with these challenges?” will take place.
