GRF Vice-Chairwoman Mrs. Hanzade Doğan Boyner Named as “Role Model” by the Girl Effect Movement


GRF Member; Hanzade Doğan Boyner, Chairwoman of Doğan Online and Doğan Gazetecilik, named as “Role Model”  by the Girl Effect movement.

Created by the Nike Foundation in collaboration with the NoVo Foundation, United Nations Foundation and Coalition for Adolescent Girls, the Girl Effect movement focuses on the potential of girls to end poverty for themselves and the world. In order to help realize this potential, the Girl Declaration was prepared  as a guide of action.

Within this framework, each year, the Girl Effect movement chooses “Individual Champions” from amongst the signatories of the Girl Declaration as a recognition of their devotion for and contributions to the movement. Hanzade Doğan Boyner was awarded the title for the “Father Send me to School” (Baba Beni Okula Gönder) project, which has created awareness on the girls’ education and provided scholarships for over 10 thousand female students. Boyner is the first champion of the movement from Turkey.
