TEB Sigorta, the insurance subsidiary of Türk Ekonomi Bankasi (TEB), recently made a donation to the Baba Beni Okula Gönder campaign (“Papa, send me to school!”), which provided funding for the education of 145 students for 3 years. TEB’s participation in this campaign started last September during the launch of an insurance product that guarantees school fees for children in the event of the death or disability of their parents.
At the time, the bank committed to contributing a portion of the revenues from the sale of this product to this initiative: 145 young girls will now be able to continue their education for three years. TEB does not plan to stop at this initial contribution and hopes to sponsor 800 students by the end of the year.
Launched by Çagda Ya ami Destekleme Dernegi (Association to Improve Quality of Life) and the national daily newspaper Milliyet, the “Papa, send me to school!” program will facilitate the education of young Turkish girls, particularly affected by illiteracy in some rural regions of the country.
TEB (www.teb.com.tr) is the partner of BNP Paribas in Turkey where it is growing fast. It supports the development of numerous business lines in the country. Its network is composed of 170 branches.
