- What’s On
Girls of Hope was filmed in Van, Eastern Turkey, and follows the story of young girls struggling to get access to an education. This is a pertinent issue as the illiteracy rate among women is near 45 percent in Eastern and Southeastern regions of the country. Although involvement from the government, NGOs and individuals has somewhat improved the situation, economic hardship and strict traditions still prevent many girls from getting an education.

All proceeds from the event will provide much needed scholarships for girls through the Cagdas Yasami Destekleme Dernegi, an organisation aiming to support the education of girls in Turkey. The minimum recommended donation is $100.
