Sayan Peker

We all need better education in order to be better people for ourselves, for each other and for the world. However, the fact is that the majority of people are not that fortunate to have a proper one. As I consider myself within the lucky group, it is my turn to help the young people who have the passion and the potential to receive high education. The idea is not only to help them, but also to make them part of this effort, so that we can have a sustainable and ever growing charity, touching more and more lives and making a difference as we grow. The most important goal is to ultimately give the young people the freedom so that they can build better lives and can also become part of this community. This is why I’m a proud member and the chairperson of this charity.

Sayan is our chairperson. He leads the meetings of the board in the Netherlands and ensures that the policy plan is carried out properly. Within the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation, management functions overlap and everyone supports each other where necessary.
