Promoting Rural Livelihoods in Turkey

Commitment by

Husnu M. Ozyegin Foundation

In 2008, Husnu M. Ozyegin Foundation (HMOF) committed to providing $6 million to its Rural Development Program to improve the quality of life in poor, rural areas in Turkey through an integrated human rights-based, participatory, and gender-sensitive approach. The HMOF's Rural Development Program will engage in three inter-related activities: (a) development and implementation of field projects and models to empower rural communities, (b) lobbying and other advocacy activities at the policy-making level, and (c) supporting academic and scientific work (through Ozyegin University).
