Turkish Foundation for Children in Need of Protection (TKMCV), Koruncuk Vakfi believes that every child entitled the right to receive compassion, love and understanding, to sufficient nutrition and to live in a healthy environment, to benefit from the possibilities of plays and fun, to receive modern education and to improve his/her skills. We provide protection to children with no parents or were abandoned at our "children's village." Children's village is a settlement unit that consists of 10-12 houses established for providing a healthy environment for children who need protection starting from pre-school age, by improving their people skills and educating them to be socially conscious.
Established in 1979 our first Children Village, Bolluca Children Village, provides a home for homeless and physically abused Turkish orphans who have been separated from their families by Turkish Law for their physical wellbeing. The Foundation through the Village strives to create a healthy development similar to a family environment for orphans (Koruncuks), and become a part of the society.
In 2005, as a result of its success the Foundation was granted the "ECOSOC Special Consultative Status" at the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
