The Children attending courses in Seferihisar Municipality Children and Youth Center
planted 118 fruit seedlings on 5 acres of land. The children named the area allocated to
them as “Forest of Freedom”.
The young forest consists of almond, plum, apricot, apple and pear trees. When asked why
they volunteered to such an event, children explained that they dream of a time, where
children could spend time in the orchards.
Seferihisar Mayor Tunç Soyer, after joining the activity said: “We give utmost importance to
the education and future of the children living in our town . We would like to support them in
becoming self-confident world citizens. Today with the collaboration of TEMA we planted
the seedlings of the forest children were dreaming of. I am proud of these kids. We will
continue to support them as long as possible. Also I appreciate Züle Efecan’s efforts, the Head
of TEMA Foundation Seferihisar Branch for her contribution to this project.”
