What is a child in need of protection?
Children in need of protection are children who have lost their mother-father or both for any reason, or who are prevented from living with their families due to family separation, financial impossibilities, the health, and psychological conditions of their parents.Support Us
They need a sense of trust and strong relationships to develop their skills.
In our children's homes, it is aimed for children in need of protection to live in better conditions than in dormitory environments, in the warmth of home and to be reintegrated into society.Support Us

With the Protector Family practices, it is aimed to show the child who is orphaned, in need of protection or who cannot be cared for by his/her own family for various reasons, the warm family environment, the role model of parents, the communication structure within the family, and to make him/her feel the existence of a family that loves, protects and trusts him/her. The Protector Family Project, which has a vital importance in the socialisation of our children, continues to work with the goal of “one family for each child".
Home volunteering is a volunteer work activity that can be carried out individually or as a family in order to contribute to the spiritual, physical, and social development of children living in children’s homes opened by Mutlu Yuva Association.
These activities can take place in the children’s home or in the volunteer’s home. For example, a home volunteer can take children to his/her home for breakfast, dinner, or a festive meal, take them to social events such as cinema and theatre, or organise picnics.
The project aims to provide role models, social integration, and socio-cultural development of children between the ages of 10 and 18 staying in children’s homes. Within the scope of the project, volunteers between the ages of 18 and 30, who are selected through an interview, participate in activities determined in accordance with the needs of the child one day a week as a volunteer of the child who is deemed suitable after the volunteer training and orientation programme. They can also support the academic needs of children.
As Mutlu Yuva Association, we realise all our activities with the support of you, our valuable benefactors. We need regular support to meet expenses such as rents, furnishings, and education of children in our children's homes. As our benefactor, you can support children in need of protection with your zakat and contributions.
