Those were the years that the young Republic of Turkey was struggling to get to its feet. There was a need for everything in the country from soup to nuts. The dream of Mehmet Zorlu in these years was introducing quality woven linen to Turkey.
Mehmet Zorlu had another dream: to provide to other people that he could not have in his lifetime. In particular, to do something that will provide education and cultural opportunities for young people... Just like Zorlu Holding started with the dreams of Zorlu family, Mehmet Zorlu Foundation started with his dream.
Mehmet Zorlu Foundation, founded in 1999, started its activities with the goal of contributing to the growth of generations that dream, believe in and trust in themselves; supporting of young people in education, culture and health, helping them get one step ahead in life.
Mehmet Zorlu Foundation, which believes that the future of a society can only be shaped by well-trained generations, gives scholarships to 2000 students every year. To date, the Foundation has granted scholarships to nearly 25.000 students in total, preparing youngsters for a safe future.
