SevinÁ Abla ÷zel Eğitim
With encouragement and personal background information
from Al Nekimken (T-13), Arkadaslar began to support the Sevinc Abla Special
Education School in Adana. Sevinc Abla is a non-profit school with
some government support that works with students and their handicaps to
prepare them for self-sufficiency and successful living. The students
are elementary age and learn academic subjects as well as skills and crafts.
We contributed $700 in 1993 and $1000 in 1994. This money, in part,
published woodworking tools, which were probably used to make the wooden
plaque displayed by both Sevinc Abla and several of the students (below) and
sent to us in late 1994.
