My Bridge to Hope Books
In parallel with Bilkent Group's mission to contribute to education; with the motivation given to us by creating resources that will enable Bilkent University to sustain its existence, we carry out social responsibility projects in order to touch the future of our students and create equality of opportunity before the university age.
With our "Library Project" which we started out with the slogan “My Bridge to Hope Books” (Umuda Körüm Kitaplarım); we have aimed at ensuring that our children studying at village schools in the regions where we are present for duty to meet with new books and creating an environment of trust and peace in both engineering and other platforms.
In the first phase of our project, we contribute to the education of more than 3000 students and to the future of our country by creating 30 primary school libraries in the villages of Şırnak, Hakkari and Mardin on behalf of Meteksan Defence by contacting the relevant authorities and teachers.
As Meteksan Defence, we will continue to be with our village schools and students in the challenging regions that we are aware of the strategic importance for our country and that we visited as part of the engineering projects.
With our Earthquake Volunteers project created with the contributions of Meteksan Defence employees, we provide the necessary assistances in the areas needed after the disaster (health, nutrition, sheltering, warming etc.) in coordination with the Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (AFAD) and ensure them to be delivered to the required regions.
As part of this project, the aids, collected by Meteksan Defence Earthquake Volunteers for our citizens affected by the earthquake that occurred on January 24, 2020, were delivered to Elazığ and Malatya and delivered to the families in need together with AFAD.
