Zekeriya Ersoy Makes Education Accessible to Village Children

On 30 December 2010, Sabanci Foundation's "Turkey's Changemakers" program hosts Zekeriya Ersoy, who aims to alter the future of children by making education accessible to all in the Southeastern Turkey.

When Zekeriya Ersoy was appointed to the district of Derik's Pirinclikoy village in Mardin province in 2000 as a teacher, there was neither a school to teach in nor a residence for him and his fellow teachers. Derik consisted of seven villages and 17 small farms. Approximately 1.000 children could not go to school.

Turkey has experienced fundamental changes in education in the past 13 years. The first significant change was executing 1997 reforms that called for eight years of continuous, compulsory education. Implementing the reform was not a smooth process; policymakers at first did not provide extensive support to make the process more effective. As a result, the lack of infrastructure, classrooms, teachers and parents' willingness had taken its toll, particularly in the villages.
