Sister & Brother School Projects

ÜTOPYA’S SISTER SCHOOL PROJECTS
Ütopya has a joint venture with EU Comenius Project united with the same aims for the children, whose responsibilities include becoming a World Citizen, using their languages, increase their learning and life skills. The difference with Comenius Projects is not just joining with five or six schools at the same time, but a nursery school, different schools and institutions in the country visited. Joining fees for students are provided by the parents and for the teachers is paid by Ütopya management. The main reason for the need of sister schools is because it is not otherwise possible to join the Comenius project, which is held for two years without a break. For the years which could not be joined, Ütopya generated sisters schools projects and took the responsibility of organising it as part of Ütopya Management, in order to reach the targeted aims, and maintaining continuation. Sister schools projects carry on not only abroad but also in Turkey as different projects.
