A Protocol was signed for Şanlıurfa within the scope of "My Mom’s Job is My Future"
A signing ceremony was organized between the representatives of Şanlıurfa Organized Industrial Zone (OIZ) and Borusan within the scope of My Mom’s Job is My Future project.

A signing ceremony was recently organized for 'My Mom’s Job is My Future' project that entails the construction of a Borusan Joy Factory in Şanlıurfa as part of Borusan's efforts to increase women’s employment rate by supporting mothers who want to work. The governor of Şanlıurfa Celalettin Güvenç, the Regional Manager of the Şanlıurfa Organized Industrial Zone Remzi İnalı, the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for Borusan Holding Bülent Demircioğlu and Borusan Holding CEO Agah Uğur were present during the signing ceremony that took place in Istanbul.

In order to express their gratitude on behalf of women and children from Şanlıurfa the governor Celalettin Güvenç stated that:

"We are here today to bring an important project to life. We would like to express our appreciation to the Ministry of Family and Social Policies. The magnitude of the problems we have in terms of women's participation to social life and economy has already been mentioned. Aside from this, rural population is one of our preeminent issues. The rural population in developed countries is 6% of the whole population; however, the average rate in Turkey is 25%, while in Şanlıurfa it is as high as 45%. Based on current statistics unfortunately 72% of Şanlıurfa’s 1.8 million population is currently under the age of 29. In 2012, Şanlıurfa has a record of 62,000 births which is higher than sixteen other countries. We are also aware of the important responsibilities that the rapidly developing private sector has under these circumstances. Accordingly we want to express our appreciation and thanks to all shareholders of the project and especially Borusan for being socially responsible and taking action to develop social responsibility projects."

The Regional Manager of the Şanlıurfa Organized Industrial Zone Remzi İnalı asserted that Şanlıurfa is a candidate for the country’s leading textile city where there is a great concentration of textile corporations and therefore there is a great need for such a Project. He completed his words by thanking Borusan.

Borusan launched My Mom’s Job is My Future social responsibility project in collaboration with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies and the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology for women who are unable to work because of child care. Within this scope, daily child care facilities, which will provide care and preschool needs of children aged between 0 and 6, will be built in 10 organized industrial zones of 10 cities across Turkey.
