Friday was the sixth anniversary of the establishment of Turkey’s Maarif Foundation which runs an international network of schools. The foundation, authorized by the government to operate Turkish schools abroad, enjoys vast success and has expanded since its founding.

Its 428 schools on six continents made Maarif the country’s leading brand in education across the world as Ankara strives to boost its “soft power.”

Along with schools in 49 countries, the foundation runs 44 dormitories across the globe, serving more than 50,000 students.
