Maggie Moore, wife of British Ambassador Richard Moore, and Av. Nurdeniz Tunçer once again visited our students.
Maggie Moore, the wife of British Ambassador Richard Moore and Nurdeniz Tunçer , the head of the Association of Guide Dogs, and their guide dogs named "Kara" and "Star" who guide them were guests at our "Success Stories" seminar organized at our Tarabya campus.
With the aim of reaching those in need every year with social responsibility projects, TBS has been supporting the association and the introduction of guide dogs by carrying out projects regularly. We have been helping the Guidebook Dogs Association since 2014.
TBS students are continuing at full speed in order to help announce the "guide dog for visually impaired" project, which is a very recent event in Turkey, by raising awareness on this subject. It was announced at the seminar that students, or Ambassadors, will be choosen for additional projects to introduce the Guide Dogs Association outside the school. This newest project aims to create a new dimension to the work of collecting financial support by creating sensitivity and awareness.
As a continuation of this collaborative work, our guests returned and participated in the seminar "Success Stories”. UK Ambassador Richard Moore’s wife Mrs Maggie Moore, who herself is visually impaired, together with the founder of the Guide Dogs Association, Av. Nurdeniz Tunçer, answered the many questions of the students. Their guide dogs named Star and Kara guided both guests around the school and laid silently during the seminar.
Maggie Moore began by thanking the students and the community for hosting the seminar and stated that they are grateful for the support provided by the students. They announced that thanks to the support of our students Turkey’s first guide dog trainer Ms. Ece and first guide dog KARA were sent to England. They both completed their training and returned to Turkey to begin their work. Thanks to this training, Kara is now guiding Nurdeniz Tunçer. Next Miss Nurdeniz Tunçer, also thanked the students for their support. Miss Tunçer stated that thanks to the guide dog she can now live a normal life, she can now use public transport and comfortably walk on the streets without someone else with her.
