Do you want to join the action?
At Imece, we have developed a variety of projects. In 2018, we introduced the Solar Age program in partnership with Barefoot College in India. We invite groups of immigrant women to our village to learn to work with solar energy. By teaching them a trade skill, we hope to give them a chance to develop a career, to become financially independent.
We also distribute basic necessity goods to unofficial refugee settlements throughout the İzmir region.
In addition, we provide a mobile education program to the children living in these settlements. Most of the children living there are unable to attend school, we provide various activities that teach them basic mathematics, Turkish language skills, and school etiquette. We hope these workshops can help prepare them for when their chance to enroll comes around. For those that do attend school, we provide support for their families and a liaison between their families and the local authorities to ensure that they can continue their education.
The help of volunteers is vital to our progress!
