Information Technology Classes Project
TTSIS donated 42.000 computers in 55 cities and showed the importance it places on education.
Employment has been an important factor for Turkey Textile Industry Employers Trade Union since the establishment until the present day. Importance of human which is the core of employment case, has highlighted the need for staffs who developed in the improving world conditions and powerful competing environment and who know about the technological innovations. Under the light of all these changes, as a union, with the belief that the best investment for Turkey’s future is to train a youth qualified in a wide range of qualifications, the principle of supporting educational projects has been conserved and invigorated.
In this context, our educational services reached its climax with ministry of education’s “Support to Education with Computer” campaign. Our General Shareholder’s meeting had two extraordinary sessions just for this purpose and agreed on the construction of 2.000 technology classes, anticipating this honourable and visionaire project to be completed at its best.
Our trade union earmarked the largest fund for the “Support to Education with Computer”campaign. Project was launched with a signing ceremony in which prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, ministry of education Hüseyin Çelik and our Trade union chairman Halit Narin participated.
