Welcome to the ReVi Family!

Thank you for your interest in joining us in Izmir.

We're a group of Syrian, Turkish and international volunteers with the goal to help the refugees with sustainable job opportunities and solutions. We're currently working with families in Izmir (Turkey) who plan to stay in Turkey.

We started our activities in January 2016 and we now run daily activities in the Basmane / Kadifekale / Ikicesmelik areas of Izmir.

We work with these families in the long-term, so it's important that they know our group. That's why we ask that all volunteers commit to a minimum of one week volunteering with ReVi.

If you do live in Izmir, you're welcome to join us part-time.

We have had volunteers from all over the world. And everyone is welcome to join us. You don't necessaily need to have any particular skills, just the willingness to help. Arabic or Turkish language skills isn't necessary, but always helpful.

Before creating a fundraising campaign using ReVi's name, please talk to us.

We DO NOT allow photos or interviews with the families. Please respect that. No journalists, no filmmakers, no researchers, etc. are allowed to join our family visits.

We ask that all volunteers respect that and be vigilant of other people trying to do it. This will hurt the trust of the families and everything that we're trying to do here. It's very important.

If you're a journalist and would like to interview us, please feel free to send us an email.

Make sure you're following our activities on Facebook!

Besides our usual activities with the families and the ReVi Schools, we're looking for entrepreneurs and volunteers with ideas and a variety of skills to join our coworking environment to think, develop, market and sell ideas that will make a direct impact to the families that we help.


We're looking for tangible ideas that can provide an additional income to the families immediately.
