VitrA is also a long-term partner of the Eczacıbaşı Hygiene Project, an international award-winning project to ensure that children studying at regional primary boarding schools live in modern, high-quality and healthy environments.
As a founding partner of this project, VitrA is responsible for redesigning and completely renovating the bathrooms and showers of these schools, which serve children from rural areas of Turkey. The Ministry of Education supports the project by upgrading the plumbing infrastructure at designated schools. Other partners include Eczacıbaşı’s Solo brand, which instructs students on good personal hygiene practices, and Eczacıbaşı Volunteers, who carry out volunteer projects aimed at enriching the social and intellectual activities available to children.
Initiated in 2007, in collaboration with The Association in Support of Contemporary Living (CYDD), the Eczacıbaşı Hygiene Project has to date completed five primary boarding schools, bringing health, hygiene and hope to the lives of hundreds of schoolchildren in Turkey.
