Description

Renovation and landscaping of Math Village education center in Sirince, Izmir.

The Math Village in Sirince needs small groups of up to five international volunteers for different daily tasks during the summer. This project will give you a chance to meet a lot of Turkish young people who will be participating in mathematics courses in the center.

The volunteers' tasks in this project include construction, reconstruction, renovation, landscaping, gardening, classroom cleaning and work in the kitchen of the non-formal education center.

Math Village was created by a university professor aiming to endear math to young people. The village is already 8 years old. Around 200 math lovers gather in this center during summer holidays, to learn, exercise and study math. International and national math professors are voluntarily sharing their knowledge with the young students.

Location: Sirince is a small village in the west of Turkey. Please be aware that the center is a bit isolated. No night life, TV or disco is available at the center. But the next village Sirince, which is only 15 minutes by foot, is very attractive and is famous for its homemade wines and its 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.
