As Kızlar Sahada, we transferred our revenue from ticket sales from the Istanbul Cup we organised from 2013-2018, which amounted to over 80,000 Turkish liras, to foundations and NGOs such as AÇEV, Darüşşafaka, ITU BMT-KAUM (Women's Studies Center in Science, Engineering and Technology), and the Boğaziçi University Foundation.
In 2013 and 2014, our official social responsibility partner was the Community Volunteers Foundation.
In 2015, our total income was donated to AÇEV’s Father Support Program. We continued supporting the program in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Through the program, fathers received training for 13 weeks on how to behave and communicate with their children in a variety of contexts, with gender equality being the focal point.
Parallel to the support we provided to the Father Support Program, we also created scholarship opportunities for young women at Istanbul Technical University (ITU) through the ITU Women's Research and Application Center in 2016. In 2017, we contributed to the Boğaziçi University scholarship fund.
We have reached economically disadvantaged girls aged 10-12 through our one-week social development programs, Kızlar Sahada Academy, which we have been organising since 2016 with the revenue we generated in 2016-2019. .
We transparently share our impact analysis report with all our stakeholders by conducting a social impact evaluation of Kızlar Sahada Academy, which is a part of the Kızlar Sahada program and was implemented as a social responsibility project on November 19-26, 2016.
By using SROI (Social Return on Investment) analysis as our measurement tool, we have calculated our cost/benefit ratio and saw that a 1 TL investment in Kızlar Sahada Academy is transformed to create a difference worth 12.45 TL.
Kızlar Sahada Academy’s SROI analysis was conducted to see the effects of the project, to identify the most and the least efficient points of the project, and to use the resources in the most effective way. This analysis was also designed to be used as a tool for the announcement and dissemination of the project. In other words, the report was prepared by Atlı Consultancy as a way to appeal to both internal and external stakeholders, and holds the title of “Turkey’s first and only Assurance-certificated SROI Analysis Report” upon the inspection of Social Value International.
SROI (Social Return on Investment)is a framework created to measure the return of social investment – in other words, by attributing financial value to the social, environmental and economic consequences of change. The SROI method allows the cost/benefit ratio of the project to be calculated. When calculating the social impact, the SROI method does not focus solely on the beneficiary group; it includes all stakeholder groups that have invested time, service and money in the project and those who are affected by the results of the project.
