Soma Project

Rebuilding the lives of mining families

The Soma Project is an income-generation project for the women of Soma, Manisa, Turkey, whose lives were devastated by the major mining disaster of May 2014. 



Micro-business management courses offered 

Over the years, we have introduced courses in micro-business management to local communities. Women who have attended our programs have gone on to improve or launch their own businesses.   



Years Serving local artisans

We have been serving local Turkish communities in need as well as promoting Turkish culture and educating the Turkish diaspora in the West for almost two decades. 



Women Artisans trained

The effects of our trainings radiate beyond statistics. The women artisans we have trained have gone on to train others in their local communities and beyond.
