SOCIAL IMPACT MEASUREMENT OF BORUSAN HOLDING’S “MY MOM’S JOB IS MY FUTURE” PROJECT


Mikado Sustainable Development Consulting conducted the social impact measurement of the project “My Mom’s Job Is My Future” between July-September 2017 to increase the organizational efficiency of the project and maximize its social impact. Borusan Holding run the project since 2013 in collaboration with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies and the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, aiming to increase the employment rate of women in industry and foster the empowerment of women.

In this context, Borusan opened up 4 child day care facilities under the name of "Borusan Joy Factory" for children aged between 0 and 6 within 4 Organized Industrial Zones (OIZ) situated in Adýyaman, Afyonkarahisar, Balýkesir and Malatya cities of Turkey. The objective of Borusan Joy Factories was to facilitate the lives of women who cannot participate the labour force because of their child-care responsibilities and to enhance the contribution of skilled female labour force participation to the Turkish economy.

The collaboration between Mikado and Borusan involves site visits to local governments, local NGOs, “Borusan Joy Factories”, and OIZs within these 4 cities to determine the impact of the project on its main stakeholders.
