At least 1 million and 100 thousand students are expected to benefit from the revamped workshops in the next decade
It is planned to complete the renewal and update of all workshops until the end of next year. When we assume that there are approximately 2 thousand students per school, the project will allow 110 thousand students to benefit from modern education and training opportunities in the first stage. When it is calculated that renewed and modified devices and workshops will be used for a decade, it can be seen that at least 1 million and 100 thousand students will benefit from the renewed workshops during this period.
