"You might not have any needs but they do."

HOW AIP WAS BORN?

WITH THE FOUNDER’S OWN WORDS… HOW AIP (PROJECT FOR IMMEDIATE NEEDS) WAS BORN?

“Many years ago, I established a foundation with the purpose of lessening the burden of people in need, contributing to the solutions of their social problems that arise from health, education and economic issues.

I was really young then, almost still a child, and I had this strong desire in my heart to reduce social injustice. Deep down I knew that there were people who needed the things we didn’t need. The Foundation “Project for Immediate Needs” was founded with this energy.

During the following years, I witnessed that there are a lot of sensitive, responsive people and that there are several ways of helping others according to one’s budget and lifestyle. Today, I can feel it in my bones that life becomes more meaningful and people become stronger and more graceful when they give, share and lighten sorrows.

In this endeavor, AIP Foundation calls on you to become more graceful by sharing and to embrace the power of being human.

Dr. Ebru Nurluoğlu

The AIP (Project for Immediate Needs) Foundation was born as a solidarity group with the aim of strengthening the feeling of helping each other, which is a part of our national identity, and bringing together the ones in need and the ones who could help.

In 1993, a group of volunteers came together upon Ebru Nurluoğlu’s, a student in Boğaziçi Üniversitesi (Bosphorus University) call to aid. They collected clothing, food, goods and books from their social circles and delivered them to remote regions of Turkey. Before long, the group’s idea with their motto “You might not need it, but they do” spread and received support.

The number of volunteers increased as the success of their aid stories were made public. In 1993, the group served as a non-governmental entity helping people with different political and religious preferences, from different ethnic groups or locations, and brought together a vast variety of volunteers of all ages and professional backgrounds.
