  • Fethiye Ticaret Meslek Lisesi School is a Vocational  High School in Turkey in Fethiye city, which is situated near the
    Taurus Mountain, on Mediterranean Sea. The outskirts of the town and the city belong to the one of the most interesting
    parts of Turkey.

  • As Fethiye Commerce Vocational High School, we give a great importance to Life-Long Education period. Providing a situation or an opportunity where our teachers and students can cooperate with other cultures is one of our schools’ priorities.

  • 80 per cent of our students travel to their school from our county’s villages by private school services – Nearly all their families live on farming and level of their income is very low. The students whose income is insufficient and parents are divorced or unemployed can hardly continue their education.

  • Most of our students’ parents education is at a primary school level which is for 5 years. To add this point, either or in some cases both parents are illiterate.

  • That the students living in villages don’t have separate room to study puts them in a difficult situation in their social lives and education.

  • Although it appears that all these negative points make students education conditions difficult, our ambition is to overcome all these negative conditions through creating new opportunities for them;

  • Our school needs this project to equalize educational opportunities of the youth from villages through entrusting them the positions of the leaders of groups responsible for doing particular tasks connected with the project, encouraging and making students interested in new technologies: computer, internet; getting in touch teenagers who are in particularly difficult economical and social situations, overcoming their shyness resulting from the situations;

  • We want to form the attitude of tolerance; students through contact with pupils from other countries learn how to be tolerant of different culture, customs, race, religion;

  • Taking part in this project will let us to  gather materials showing the similarities and differences and the influence of the partner countries on creating and developing culture heritage and civilization accomplishment of the whole Europe;
