  • Description


    Our Cafe is an associative coffee shop, where we organize events to build links between Turkish and refugee communities. It is in front of the sea in the touristic city of Cesme, facing the Greek island of Chios.

    Our NGO runs a lot of activities with refugees at the camps and in our education village nearby Cesme.
    The Cafe was our first warehouse and community centre. It is run by a team of volunteers, so there is no paid staff.

  • Hébergement


    Izmir village

    If you choose to stay with us instead of an alternative place you will stay in the Village, 3 km away from Çeşme, together with volunteers from all over the world. It is a self-sustainable village and we live together as a big family. We eat mostly vegetarian meals which are served three times a day. Besides that, there is free filtered water, coffee and tea all day. Volunteers live together. Showers and toilets are shared. We have washing machines if you need that. Unfortunately, we cannot let you live in the village for free as it costs a lot to pay for water, electricity, food, etc: we do not earn money and the donations go to the refugees... We ask you to pay a certain amount based on how long you will stay with us, between 5 and 10 euros. If you prefer you can also rent a place in Cesme.

    The Cafe is divided in two parts:
    - The Coffee shop itself, 100m² with everything needed: coffee material, chairs, sofa, decoration...etc.
    - The backside (100m²) has two mezzanines and one private room with beds, hot shower, washing machine, kitchen, toilets...etc. The place would be renovated between october and november.
