He said, “We are carrying out activities to provide better educational opportunities for children, the guarantors of the future, and enable equal access to quality education. Today, the paintings of children, the guarantors of our future, brought us together here. The paintings sent by children every year show us that these children are on the right track, and give us hope for the future. This new and strong generation is interested in science and art. We will continue to encourage them with motivational projects and other events, such as the April 23 Painting Competition.”
