Lisinia Project Turkey - Be A Volunteer and Support Nature
Posted March 11th, 2013 - 3:07 pm by from Nicosia, Cyprus (Permalink)
Hi dear travellers and volunteers :D
Lisinia is a nature project that doesn't accept any grants or donations in order to keep its independence. The project area is located next to the Burdur Lake in Burdur,Turkey. The aim of the project is to provide healthy future for our children by protecting the nature and increasing the awareness of cancer.

Lisinia Project has got 3 basic projects.
-Cancer Awareness Project
-Wildlife Rehabilitation Project
-Organic Agriculture and Nature Protection Project

The project has been acting for 7 years and started to accept volunteers 2 years ago. Within these 2 years, over 1500 volunteers and travelers have visited the project area and supported the project.

Accomodation, transportation from city center of Burdur to project area and food are provided by the Lisinia and WE NEVER ASK FOR MONEY for these. All we want is to increase awarenes of cancer and to protect nature.

How you can help to support the Lisinia Project is by working with us a few hours a day in return for food and accomodation. For example, depending on the season we will prune the trees or harvest the fruits or install the drip watering system in the garden. Together with feeding wild animals who need rehabilitation. Also basic daily needs such as cooking and cleaning.

We also have profile on helpx.com, workaway.com and wwoof.org

Hi Hamza,

This project sounds amazing and very interesting. I would like to ask where a volunteer can stay and how many volunteers you can accept at the same time?

I am a member of a motorcycle group and we are often on the roads in the summer time. Maybe we can arrange a tour that passes this village.

Can you please give more details?

Regards,

Bulent
