The Turkish School celebrated Culture Day on 25 April in the capital, Sana’a. The event had many cultures represented, including the Pakistani, Indian, Turkish and Yemeni cultures.

The Minister of Culture, Abdullah Aobal was present, along with several ambassadors.

Turkish ambassador Fazli Corman told the audience that “cultural relations between the two countries will promote a prosperous future. Turkey is eager to develop these relations.”

The Turkish School was established in 1998. There are separate campuses of the school. One is located in Sana’a, and the other two are in Aden and Taiz. The minister and ambassadors were thanked by the school for their participation and contributions.

The event included a dance performance by children from The Pakistan School in traditional Pakistani dress.

Public school teacher Maymona Alselwi teaches at Safia School. Her class performed a play at the event.

The show is about a dream bank. Children try to deposit their dreams, but the bank is closed. The dreams all revolve around the themes of education, cleanliness, disabilities and homelessness

“The message of the show is that children and their dreams are our future. We also had the opportunity to show the audience the traditional clothing of Haraz,” Alselwi said.

Culture Day is an annual event celebrated in Sana’a, said The Turkish School prinicpal Munib Fadan.

The Gülen Movement and Turkish Soft Power*

The Gülen approach to education aptly demonstrates the group’s global strategy—Gülen movement schools are open to both Turkish migrants and citizens of host countries, and they avoid advancing a religious agenda. These schools aim to help Turkish migrants succeed in their host societies without losing sight of their Turkish roots, and at the same time they promote social unity by serving the needs of migrants and local students alike. The success of Gülen movement schools stems both from the success of the students (and the satisfaction of the parents) and from the prestige and goodwill they enjoy among local and political authorities for promoting integration and acting as a social mediator.
