Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) renovated the library named after Murat Ellik, martyred on July 15, in Kenya.

Following its renovation project, TİKA inaugurated the library built at Dagoretti High School and named after Murat Ellik, who was martyred during the coup attempt of July 15 after completing his mission at the Turkish Embassy in Nairobi. The inauguration ceremony was attended by Ahmet Cemil Miroğlu, Turkey’s Ambassador to Kenya; Eyüp Yavuz Ümütlü, TİKA’s Nairobi Coordinator; members of parliament; teachers; and many students.

In his speech at the inauguration ceremony, Ambassador Miroğlu stated that Turkey was ready to help Kenya in every field, including education.

Eyüp Yavuz Ümütlü, TİKA’s Nairobi Coordinator, stated that investing in education means investing in the future of a country, and that TİKA would continue to contribute to providing quality education to Kenyan students.

Peter Orero, Principal of Dagoretti High School, remarked that he was truly honored that partners such as Turkey provided assistance to the school. He said, “This library will help us greatly and benefit our students substantially.”
