It started with an immigrant mother’s concerns about her child not being able to speak his/her mother tongue competently. But the first flap of our migratory bird Fiyu, was only after coming together with Turkey’s most talented child content production team. They beat each other’s heads for months on what to create for Turkish speaking children who live outside of Turkey. And the result was The Fiyu Magazine for school children and the Pupa Magazine for younger children who aren’t yet literate.

The Fiyu Magazine is extremely excited to cry out a greeting with joyful whistles from England to all the Turkish speaking children around the world and it aims to prepare a special content which will provide an appropriate perspective for children to understand current events and notions. The Fiyu Magazine has adopted approaches that will contribute to children’s lingual development and reading habits, improve the way they express themselves and facilitate their orientation with the culture they live in.

Our team consists of people who are experienced in creating contents for children and extremely competent in this field. We always keep in mind that we and the children are equals and we are exposed to the same events and developments in the same world. Therefore, we present our projects in communication with the children and by levelling down to their eye-sight.

We commit ourselves to our one and only, unique children’s childhood by taking their perceptions, views, preferences, desires, dreams, goals and purposes into consideration. We stand against all kinds of discriminations such as language, race, gender; and stand for the rights of people, women, children, animals, plants with an eco-friendly point of view and seeing our cultural differences as our richness. In our fundamental framework we see creating qualitative and authentic contents that push the opportunities of visual and written language as our primary principle.

We trust the children. We respect them.

We believe in them.

Fiyu

Scientists know me as/call me “Anas Penelope” but my friends call me Fiyu.

I live in Europe and at the north of Asia during summer. When winter comes I migrate to South; England, Turkey even to Japan.
You can recognize me from the white spot on my side and from my whistle sounding “Fii-yuu”.

Some time ago, I met people who produce content for children and (Voila!) here I am!
