The Winter Auction, organized by De Müzayede in Gaziantep with the participation of Minister of Finance Mehmet Şimşek and Mrs. Esra Kara Şimşek under the main sponsorship of Akbank and sponsored by Sanko Holding, Gülsan Holding, Torkut Packaging and Anatolian Hotel, in order to provide support for the school to be built by Empathy Social Responsibility and Education Association, attracted huge attention.
Chairwoman Pınar Topçuoğlu, in her opening speech at the auction which was attended by Gaziantep’s leading industrialists and businessmen, emphasized the importance of education and said, “With a mission of instilling excitement and opening new horizons in Gaziantep and Türkiye since its foundation, Empathy aims to serve for bettering education. In the light of our field studies, we revealed that the primary problem of our society is lack of education. We act on the principle that quality and right education will not only be in schools but within life with the improvement of social and cultural infrastructure. In this direction, we would like to launch the ‘Education in Every Field’ project here today. The income of this auction will be used for the primary school to be built in our city within the scope of this project. We believe that success in education comes not only through hardwork of the students but also through education of the parents. We are planning a parent school project in our school to be built. We want to create new success stories by ensuring the social and cultural development of families and students.”
Minister of Finance Mehmet Şimşek supported the auction by donating his tie.
