Agricultural production activities in our country began to lose their importance with the increasing rate of migration from village to city. This program aims to increase the importance of decreasing agricultural production activities through foreign volunteers who come to the country within the program framework. As part of the agriculture program, we provide our volunteers with field areas where they can experience modern and traditional agriculture. Our first field activity area includes the villages in Istanbul. The agriculture program volunteers contribute to the continuity of ongoing agriculture in the villages of Istanbul As a result, they are involved in the village production and become part of production continuity. The other field area for incoming volunteers covers permaculture areas. Thanks to permaculture, they have the opportunity to make agriculture in the city center. Incoming volunteers will have experienced both traditional agriculture in the villages and modern agriculture in the urban center

•    To support the sustainability of agricultural production in the city
•    To observe and gain awareness of permaculture dynamics
•    To contribute to the phase of production.
•    To have knowledge about the operation of natural agriculture


The Civil War in Syria has prompted massive waves of migrants into Turkey since 2011. Children have been the group most affected by the war. The regular education process of children has been interrupted by the war. Syrian children who were forced to immigrate to Turkey continue their education in Turkey. We organize various workshops aimed at social cohesion in schools, NGOs and important institutions where Syrian and Turkish children study together. Our volunteers will have the opportunity to experience volunteering in areas with the highest concentration of Syrian refugees. Together with our incoming volunteers for Syrian Support Program, we lead field activities that contribute to the psychosocial, educational and foreign language development of Syrian refugees. As a result of the program achievements, we aim to bring Syrian children into society as individuals with advanced social, language and educational skills.
