Project by EUL students entitled “1 Pencil 1000 Children”

By Ahmet Abdulaziz ….

As part of the social programs of European University of Lefke (EUL), the students of the university recently came up with the idea of a collection of pencils, to be distributed to needy children, and for sale to collect funds for educational activities.

The campaign was organised to support the Olive Tree Education and Solidarity Association.

Chairperson of the Pre-School Teaching Department Assist. Prof. Dr. Çağda Kıvanç Çağanağa gave information about community service practices and said that they conduct social responsibility projects not only in the Lefke region but also throughout the island and receive very positive feedback.

Çağanağa stated that they instituted the theme of social sharing in the project and said that they carried out a Pencil Collection Campaign for a period of 3 months and that many people share their pencils and supported the campaign by buying pencils.

Receiving the items collected within the scope of the campaign, Rabia Özcömert, President of the Olive Tree Education and Solidarity Association, thanked EUL students for their contributions and stated that they would like to participate in EUL’s social responsibility projects in the following years.
