In its more than 150 years of existence DARUSSAFAKA has maintained its position in Turkey with the specific mission of providing EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION. At DARUSSAFAKA , children not only high quality education but also develop their personal skills and social orientation that enable them to become leaders in different segments of the society nationally and internationally.
