DOWN CHEFS VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT PROJECT

Kuyaş Real Estate supported the “Down Chefs Vocational Training and Employment Project” led by Istanbul Down Syndrome Association and implemented with the cooperation of Turkish Chefs Federation (TAFED), Tomurcuk Foundation and Kare Kindergarten.

The project aimed at developing the abilities of the persons with Down syndrome in the kitchen as well as improving their dietary habits and empowering them to start working as chefs and to be socially included and the final event for the project was held on 9th May 2017, Tuesday, at Sheraton Grand Istanbul Ataşehir. Certificates and plates of success were delivered to the Down Chefs and the event became even more colorful with a special folk dance show by children with Down syndrome.

“We will keep on growing together with sensitive artists, the business world, our volunteers and children with Down syndrome. The most important value for us is love and love is beautiful when its shared. It is pleasing that you are all here”, said Muhammed Abdullah Tuncay, the President of Istanbul Down Syndrome Association. Additionally, within the scope of the project, a booklet of “Recipes from Down Chefs” will also be published and a healthy and basic nutrition guide will thus be offered to individuals with Down syndrome and their families and generally to everyone in the society.
