The Final Climb

An Extraordinary dream… From an Extraordinary man… 

Necdet Turhan is a blind adventurer and an athlete who finished 5 marathons & climbed 4 mountains. And he has 1 last climb to see his dream come true. Soon, in Feb 2017 in Australia – Mount Kosciuszko…
finalclimb2Read More about about Necdet here…

In partnership with BTF, Necdet is climbing & rising for a cause near to his heart, to increase literacy and to create education opportunities for the blind children & youth.

His courage will change lives…

  • 12% of the Turkish population is disabled including visually impaired/blindè 202,211 children in a total disabled population of 9,300,000
  • Only, 9 % of the disabled children is getting an education or currently schooled vs. 90% population norm
  • This ratio is much severe for the blind, only 5% is getting an opportunity to go/attend school

Our circle of compassion promotes respect and fellowship for humankind in the communities we serve.
