                As Borusan Lojistik, we decided to give scholarships to 20 girls who receive educa-
                tion outside İstanbul for helping women to have occupations and strengthening their
                positions in society by supporting their education. We donated TRY 19 thousand to
                Association for Supporting Contemporary Life (ÇYDD). We intend to meet the educa-

                tional needs of 10 girls who receive education in Anatolia through ÇYDD every year.
