The Rural schoolgirls of the Eastern Anatolian borderlands

In Eastern Turkey, a long low level conflict between Kurdish separatists and the Turkish state has claimed the lives of many thousands.
One of the consequences of this conflict is that it has deprived the most invisible and vulnerable members of that society, in this case young rural girls, from the most basic education.
In an attempt to address this issue a government campaign, «Let’s Go to School» was launched between the Turkish Government and UNICEF. It was followed by a further campaign, «send me to school, dad» by the Milliyet news group.
The campaigns have been a success in getting record numbers of rural girls into school.
