Present situation of the Yunus Emre farm
This page to review the situation ...
As many people asked to come to the farm, i felt i need to give some recent news and review the situation :
The Yunus Emre farm is presently closed as far as activities are concerned: neither program, nor retreat, nor volunteering are possible due to the lack of accomodation; this lasts since the fire that took place in 2012;
Yet.... behind the scene, the Yunus Emre farm prepares to look like new !
-- We prepare an application for Fundings to TKDK, a supportive organisation of rural areas in Turkey; it could allow the building of Anahat, our Guest House, and the installation of the solar system; we expect the application being given in beginning of 2017 and the result during spring... inshallah!
Another application to Yves Rocher Foundation has been done for TERRE de FEMMES prize : if we win, we will be able to build more accomodation and buy material for Anahat, like refrigerator and ovens; The accomodations we asked for are the Dormitoris, small wooden huts (see pic) for 2 :) Lets hope and cross the fingers; results end 2016 ...
Additionnaly a Crowd Funding Campaign has been launched and many of you already made donations which allow ....
works starting soon with Enver Usta :) , more pics within one month ...
-- Isabelle's house received a Solar Hot Water system + Wooden oven + other improvements :)
We still need to build the TOOLSHED , FIX the LOTUS POND, big water reservoir, FIX the EXISTING constructions (Saraswati tent/ Chandi tent/ Toilets/ Showers etc...) and of course we also need MONEY to hold on until the reopening ....
very easy and we would be VERY HAPPY!
So like this, the farm is closed yet prepares the REOPENING for ...
