We're a group of Syrian, Turkish and international volunteers helping families through job opportunities, education and emergency aid in Izmir, Turkey.

We have helped many Syrian families in Izmir since Jan 2016 and we have had over 200 volunteers from around the world. A lot has changed since when we started and what we're able to do is constantly changing as well. So, please refer to our Facebook Group for the most updated information about our activities.

We run two kindergarten schools for 120+ children. We have hired five Syrian teachers from the community and we have classes Monday - Friday. We teach Arabic, Math, Arts, Dance and plenty of play time.

The teachers work closely with the families to get them registered into a Turkish School.

We support 40+ families through our bracelet and knitting programs. Every 40 bracelets sold is enough to pay a family's monthly rent. They're all for sale at the ReVi Store. Please consider buying something today :)

As donations continue to decline, ReVi relies on the profits from the sales of our products to fund the ReVi Schools and to expand these programs to more families.

We organize outdoor activities with our families and children from our school on a regular basis.

The children play. The parents socialize with each other and with our volunteers. One big happy family and diverse community.

Every weekend we visit one or more families for dinner. It's a program that we started in February 2016 to help some families financially, but it quickly became a social activity. We're their friends coming over for dinner. More than 97 delicious and fun evenings so far.
