Our school is located in Tuzla which is a suburb in Istanbul. We have 82 students and 17 staff in our school. All of the students cannot hear, that is they are hearing-impaired children and most of them have both hearing and learning problems. Most of their parents immigrated from the Black Sea Region and the Eastern Anatolian Region and they have both economically and socially bad conditions. The parents work for long hours and they earn little money. Moreover, the parents spend very little time with their children. So the children need support, attention and love. Nearly all of the students haven't seen even the local historical places, parks or other interesting places in Istanbul. We aim to help them express their needs and feelings freely. We also want to provide them some opportunities to see different places and make their horizons broaden. This project will help them understand that their hearing and speaking problems are not a major handicap to communicate, socialize, integrate and why not, meet foreign people and seeing that they are not alone.
