Gael passed away in 2012. Her sisters and friends honored her by establishing The Gael Mae Turk Memorial Scholastic Fund, which is used for scholarships and other educational programs of YEKO ANIM. Gael was a wonderful soul who traveled the world with her good friend, Judie. She did not shy away from going to the not so comfortable places, visiting orphanages and schools and touching the hearts of many.
This year, due to the wonderful response of Gael’s sisters and friends we are expanding the use of this fund to aid in the formation of the Adult Literacy Program. Gael was an early woman in technology and I am sure that she would be proud of what her legacy is promoting.
Presently we have 27 women enrolled in this program and we have five facilitators who will teach the course.
