Ive been doing a bit of online research into NGO's and charities in Istanbul, and havent come up with much and particularly in English (My Turkish is slow) and am hoping someone here might offer some insight.

I studied International Development at university and have worked in that general field since. Everything from running campaigns, policy, working and at a community level. Ive worked for governments, international organisations, micro finance and environmental watch dogs.However now I am in Istanbul teaching English, but would like to somehow keep involved in the above mentioned areas.

Any ideas, or anyone around with a similar background who wants to catch up?

Thanks

I've heard about a community in Kadikoy which is for helping left-alone children whose first language is not Turkish. You help them by teaching your language or Turkish, also you can teach them whatever you know of. You might look into it. Good luck.
