the students in that school would learn to speak Turkish and would sing Turkish songs, I would think that it would be only a dream. But now I see that these devoted Turkish teachers realized that dream and I’d like to thank to all of the teachers”.

Davutoglu stated that these students who could speak both Turkish and Nepali would build a bridge between Turkey and Nepal. He said he wanted to see the students in Turkey and added: “Turkey is your home and the students in Turkey are your sisters and brothers. I am the first but not last Turkish foreign secretary to visit Nepal. Turkish educators came to Nepal before us. I really am very grateful to them.

Ferhat Dogutekin, the coordinator of Turkish schools in Kathmandu, said: “We opened the first Turkish school in 2002 with 100 students. Today, we have 1200 students and take 10th place out of 700 private schools in Kathmandu in academic success”. People here suggested us to give up when we were trying to open the school, he added.
