The “Turkey Reads” campaign, initiated by President Abdullah Gül, expanded upon its previous successes and launched in Bafra, a coastal town in Black Sea region of Turkey.
The first "Turkey Reads, Bafra Reads" meeting took place in Bafra District Governor's Office Conference Hall. Project Coordinator Hasan Bekar briefed the audience on the goals of the project and how it would serve the community.
Defining the main aim of the Project as making sure "every home reads," Bekar highlighted the importance of family and called upon the entire district to encourage their children to read.
Bafra's District Governor Ali Katırcı noted the importance of adopting reading as a daily habit and also urged parents to create time for making reading as a family.
"Reading can be a way to bond with your children," said Katırcı. "Books prepare children for life and give them vision. As the district governor, I whole-heartedly believe in this Project and vow to support it as much as I can. Seeing participation and book donations increasing is also making me feel very grateful."
The "Turkey Reads" campaign, implemented in 2008, has three main objectives: to promote reading as a regular habit, to increase literacy among children and adults, and to increase the number of people with basic computer skills. Many civil society organizations and governmental district bodies developed tailored projects across Turkey since 2009.
