In recent years, the problem of poverty that has an important place among the socio-economic problems of present societies has occupied increasingly the agenda of Turkey. The increasing social sentiment over the poverty tries to minimize the problem through non-governmental organization and associations, and it seems that a number of associations have made a considerable use of religiosity in their attempts to increase the present sentimentality and to create concrete sources. In this paper, we have tried to evaluate the visible rise of the religiosity in recent years in some social fields which once was assumed to decrease gradually or even to disappear, with reference to the example of non-governmental organizations that have focused on the poverty.
