  • Description


    Hi Workaawayers...

    I am glad that you see my profile on your screen....
    Later on I wish we can share life expirence in the ways we macth in your and my profile...
    Here are some details for the possiblity of it, I wish this will help you to give the right workaway decision.

    I was born in Istanbul, Turkey and graduated as a Mechanical Engineer. My post-graduate program focused on Communications Sciences. As an engineer, I worked in the chemical and automotive sectors for 5 years and ran projects in Turkey, the European Union, UK, USA, Africa & Asia. Besides the technical side of engineering, I have volunteered for various social projects for 22 years as a social designer and social worker. Along with 7 other passionate individuals, I established the an association in 2017 in Bergam, İzmir, which is committed to education and regional development workshops and its units. Today we have nearly 100 volunteers, 17 Workshop types, 100 workshop studies, and 5 facilities in Bergama.

    I have a sister is working and living in İstanbul and my mom is retired teacher and living by herself in another city.

    Our Association is a locally-based international association which cares about production, development and sharing, and seeks to produce social good in its activities.
    We set out on a journey to make our dream come true – the dream of “social good” for Bergama by establishing social sciences-based, practical workshops where people learn with equipment.
    The Workshops' aim are to bring together those willing to share their knowledge and experiences with those who wish to improve themselves, learn, produce and contribute to society.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Pergamon is a small town 50.000 people live here. It is pretty cool and silent place. I here run an association here, The volunteers here work for our social good association are well educated and trustworth ones. They will communicate with you personally and support your stay here. In the 3 houses, there is only me living but, sometimes we have guests also. All volunteers stay in their own houses in Pergamon. So you also have a chance to interact with them in person among your stay.

  • Help


    I have 3 houses and 3 of them are also for the use of the Association which is based on creating Social Good oriented workshops. I am also the founder of another foundation. We also have a workshop unit in one of the houses basement. Actually I expect from workawayers to support general maintenance of the units, helping for the houses, association office studies, help for cooking and finally if they can they might work on speaking clubs for children in English / Spanish. The workawayers can focus/wish to work on one or more subject listed above.
