Our Mission and Vision


AİYD promotes a culture of solidarity and community participation for a society characterized by solidarity, inclusion, and respect and that these are pursued through education, knowledge, and support for those with the greatest difficulty and a shared solidarity, to make each one capable of determining himself. AİYD develops projects without any religious, ideological, or political affiliation, respecting the culture, education, economy, and traditions of the areas in which it operates.

AİYD believes that first step in acquiring one's autonomy, for the pursuit of one's own happiness and personal fulfillment and growth, of the faculty to understand others is in the possibility of carrying out one's own life path and in seeking their own way to interpret the world in a pluralistic civil society. Language and Education, Solidarity, Human Rights and Diversity provide these first irreplaceable instruments to reach this goal.

Focus of the organization is: linguistic education for a multilingual society; awareness and psychological and mentoring support sessions for women and children; gender equality and vocational training for women; support for widows and orphans and children with special needs; sponsoring disadvantaged children to access education (from primary to university level); education and civil participation and social cohesion through sport activities; academic research mainly focused on educational and linguistic democracy of all members of the society.
