Social Responsibility

Eczacıbaşı Volunteers

Eczacıbaşı Volunteers is a volunteer initiative established by Group employees in 2007 to carry out projects that benefit children. In principle, Eczacıbaşı Volunteers focus on projects that complement the social responsibility projects of Group companies and contribute to children’s mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.

Since 2007, Eczacıbaşı Volunteers have carried out 50 projects that have directly benefited 14,500 children in regional primary boarding schools involved in the Eczacıbaşı Hygiene Project and two pediatric wings at university hospitals in Istanbul. They have also organized eye exams for 1,500 children in a local neighborhood and collected school and student supplies for 500 primary schools around Turkey requiring assistance.

In 2011, Eczacıbaşı Volunteers developed a new project, “Music and Rhythm”, to refurbish music rooms in close to ten primary regional boarding schools across Turkey. The goal of the project is to enrich the emotional lives of students at these schools and to encourage and support students with musical talent.
