    Description

    Hello everyone!
    We are a small family who lives in an entirely green village just 15 mins far from the city center. We have found our NGO, Sustainable and Green Future Culture, Youth and Sports Association, to help the community in rural areas.

    We are growing and currently have ten kids learning English with us. They go to school and when they finish they run to our place to start practicing English with Workawayers. We are thankful for our current Workawayers for making this place enjoyable.
    We want to welcome young energetic people to help the kids. We can host 2 workawayers at the same time so couples, friends are welcome. We want kids to practice English with native speakers. Kids are learning at public school, so they need only practice to feel more confident holding conversations in English.

    We are planning to welcome more Workawayers to help us to realize some projects about the environment. But we need time to make everything ready.

    Because here is a small village and local people don't see any foreigners around them, the kids/ youngsters can be shy initially.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you are looking for a chance to live with a small family and learn Turkish culture, that would be a great opportunity. You will have a chance to taste a lot of Turkish traditional food. Our village where we live is not far from the city center so when you want to swim or discover the city bus stop is just a few steps away from our house.

    You will also find a chance to touch someone's life and change their lives by teaching.

    Accommodation

    You will have a private place and your own keys to rest and relax. Privacy is important.

    The Workawayers will be a member of our family so they won't need to worry about the food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided, and plus we love eating in nature so the volunteer will eat some traditional foods, BBQ so on. If they want to eat alone or prepare something own, that's also okay, can access the kitchen and cook as they want.
