Description:

> Enjoy a unique olive harvest adventure.
> Get the opportunity to witness olive oil-making process at a factory.
> Experience Turkey and explore a one-of-a-kind culture that does not disappoint.

CADIP offers a project organized in cooperation with Math Village, a summer school in the village of Sirince in the west of Turkey. The school owns more than 1,000 olive trees and harvests about 20 tons of olives per year. The oil produced from these olives is used in the school kitchen. Volunteers can join the olive picking and packing to support the school. If the harvest is low, volunteers can help with some minor renovation and landscaping around the village.

Project dates:
November 10 - November 30, 2019
December 1 - December 21, 2019

Sirince is very attractive and is famous for its homemade wines and traditional architecture. The nearest town Selcuk is the home of the world famous Ephessus open-air museum. The nearest city Izmir is one hour away by bus.

Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
