President’s Message

My son was also born on April 23rd and it seems that it is the birthday of many of our children….The children of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk whom we always remember with respect. The 23rd of April is not only a time for celebration, but also a symbol for us to remind the world of our civilized, republican and democratic Turkish nation. Where else in the world does a celebration like this one exist? A celebration where a Parliament, a President, a Prime Minister, Governors, Deputy Governors and many other key politic figures are represented by children for a day every year, and celebrated by the entire country.

I wish all the kids a great Holiday as well as my son, Mustafa a Happy Birthday!
