An Hour-by-hour Look at How Turkey's Attempted Coup Unfolded One Year Ago

I am proud to endorse the work of TPF – supporting education, helping after disasters, giving individuals and communities the chance to succeed and so. But the issue that is dear to my heart is girl’s education. It is dear to my heart because I am who I am because of the educational opportunities given to me by the early Turkish Republic.
