Partner of the Week: Habitat Association

Posted in Partner of The Week on March 30, 2018

Habitat Association is an NGO focused on sustainable development based in Turkey, founded in 1997 after being inspired by a group of activists at the Copenhagen Social Development Summit of 1995 and the United Nations Habitat II Summit. Their vision is to bridge world youth and Turkish youth by increasing the capacities of children, young people, women and disadvantaged groups through their projects and programmes aimed for sustainable development.

Currently, Habitat Association is working on several programmes, which focus on themes such as ‘Information and Communication Technologies’, ‘Governance’, ‘Financial Awareness’, ‘Rural Development’ and ‘Entrepreneurship’. As a part of UNICEF Turkey’s short-term national corporate consultancy programme, they have implemented the Aflatoun curriculum as tools for social and financial education.
