Historical Bridge Extending from Siverek to Çanakkale

Within the scope of KEP II – “Increasing School Attendance Rates Especially for Girls Project”, which is financed by Turkey and the European Union and implemented by the Ministry of National Education, a Search Conference was held in Şanlıurfa between 15th-16th March 2016. During the Search Conference, female students of Siverek Zübeyde Hanım Vocational and Technical Anatolian High School gave a music recital with their guitars procured under the European Union Project. During the conversation made with the students following the recital, the students all together answered “Çanakkale” upon the question of what they were especially curious about. In response to this, Ankon Consulting, as one of the consortium members of the Project, announced that it would take 10 students and their teachers to Çanakkale between 13th May and 15th May 2016 in order to make the dreams of the students come true.

The students, who would take a trip out of their districts for the first time, were quite excited and eager to be in Çanakkale that they had read about from the history books and heard about from their elders.
