WHAT WE DO
There are two types of projects in Istanbul&I
We work to harness the skillsets of our diverse community of volunteers for the social benefit of disadvantaged communities in Istanbul. Some of our volunteer programs in Istanbul seek to ensure that everyone’s basic needs are met today, while our capacity-building programs aim to create better opportunities for tomorrow.
Social Inclusion Projects
Our community space is open to all in Istanbul! We forge connections across nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and legal status, creating one of the rare communities in Istanbul uniting locals and foreigners of all stripes. Events focused on cultural exchange, language practice, intellectual discussion and skills exchange deepen our interpersonal understanding.
