Turkey Projects

Turkey-Autism Outreach (August 2017)

SALTworld also is working with the Nar Taneleri Special Education and Rehabilitation Center to assist with the creation of an ecological farm and house in the Izmir Province of Turkey that will benefit individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other physical and intellectual disabilities. This development of the farm is designed to help these individuals to become self-sufficient and to learn create a sustainable environment.  The farm will include a rainwater harvest, an edible garden, and a greywater storage system.  Additionally, they will have the opportunity to care for chickens, sheep, and goats, as well as managing a butterfly and bee-friendly garden.  Ultimately, we want them to be able to live independently and provide for themselves.  We believe that is important to teach people to fish rather than to simply give them a fish.
