Health and Education Foundation

SEV, a Turkish secular philanthropy, began in 1968 to protect and renew the educational and medical institutions of the American Board, which represents the founder of these institutions more than a century ago. SEV consists of volunteers who are the graduates of the American Board schools.

There are four high schools in Turkey (Uskudar American Academy, American Collegiate Institute, Tarsus American College, SEV American College), 3 elementary schools (Uskudar, Izmir and Tarsus SEV), a hospital (Gaziantep American Hospital) and a printing press (SEV Yayıncılık),founded by the American Board but now managed by the Health and Education Foundation, which has full responsibility and authority for them. The institutions exemplify the positive possibilities for bridging cultural divides and building trustful relationships that are needed in today’s pluralistic world. CGMB follows with hope and interest the progress of these historical institutions through its office in Turkey, the American Board.
