... Two of the women showed us some of the board games they have developed to teach children about their rights. The game seemed very dynamic and has been printed over 10000 times and distributed throughout Turkey.

The women were incredibly inspiring and the work they are doing is amazing, especially considering how small their team is. After our visit ...
