We Have Values to Pass Down to Future Generations
As a tech company based in Turkey, we are in the unique position of being situated at the nexus of past and present by virtue of our vocation and at the center of the world by virtue of our geographical location. Thanks to this position, we are surrounded by a rich heritage that we know has much to offer the world around us today and future generations tomorrow, including everything from knowledge, skills, and techniques to art and a legacy of solidarity. At Tekhnelogos, we know the value of this heritage and the importance of preserving it for our children, and we believe it is our responsibility to carry this heritage forward through inspiring projects. In recent years, we have allocated half of our budget to non-profit projects that reflect the ancient values of our geographical region and the universal values that humanity has nurtured here for millennia. Through our heritage projects, we aim to open up new horizons for the development of society, and especially to motivate our children to contribute to the world of the future.
In the fields of science, culture, art, and technology, we care about the collective heritage of our region and its legacy in shaping the farthest-flung corners of our world. By highlighting the universal character of this heritage, we strive to give our children the opportunity to avail themselves of this heritage through projects and initiatives that address and contribute to the whole world.
Through heritage projects, we aim to instill in our children the self-confidence they need to steer the course of the world, as well as an awareness of the importance of learning and living hardworking and productive lives. To this end, we strive to demonstrate to them the importance of science, culture, and art in creating prosperous societies, and to do so in a way that develops their interests, reveals the beauties of the human mind, and encourages them to come up with new ideas and work day and night in their pursuit.
Few companies in the world allocate as much of their budgets to non-profit projects as Tekhnelogos. For us, this is but a natural outgrowth of our commitment to being of service to our society and our children. We are particularly proud of our non-profit work, especially the Istanbul Jazari Museum project, and of the fact that the share of our budget we dedicate to such work exceeds that of even giant companies.
