In Turkey, 42 percent of foundations and associations are located in İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Adana and Bursa. (Civil Society Index Report 2011: Civil Society in Turkey, At a Turning Point, TÜSEV)
Whereas 35 percent of active associations in Turkey are in The Marmara Region, the percentage of associations which are active in The Southeastern Anatolia Region is only 5,1. (Department of Associations)
Turkey is the 132nd out of 135 countries whose citizens takepart in volunteering.
In the light of all aforementioned reasons, we expect becoming integral and sustainable parts of projects, civil society organizations and social enterprises within the scope of “From Spark to Society” project and take reports form our sparks about these activities on announced dates.
‘From Spark to Society’ Project which began in 2018 is coordinated by sparks who are:
