English teacher Fatma Öksüzer (1): I wished to teach to those children I watched at the Turkish Olympiads
Who are we?
We are the ones who drank from the Indus and the Euphrates… We are those who follow the lead of Muhammad Iqbal and Fethullah Gülen… We are the Islam on the flag of Pakistan … We are the venerated blood on the flag of Turkey… We are Anatolia… We are Pakistan…
We are the volunteers of the educational movement originating from Anatolia in 1990s whose paths or hearts crossed Pakistan.
We have a history
We are the volunteers of the Hizmet Movement, who from 1993 and onwards migrated from Turkey to Pakistan as students, teachers, businesspeople, and entrepreneurs in education and founded and operated the PakTurk International Schools and Colleges. Each of us has different stories. Some of us boarded on flights to Pakistan right after getting our high school diplomas, no different than being immersed in an exciting dream which we never knew how it would end…
What Do We Intend to Do?
PakTurkFile will make a record of memorable events and insights we have experienced for the quarter of a century since 1993. It will revisit as testimonies for the future generations the cherished snapshots of the childhood memories of our children born in Pakistan and the volunteers of education who were married, aged and breathed their last in Pakistan...
