Mission & Activities
Each mentally handicapped person is an individual who is equal, independent and honorable like everyone in society. IZEV Foundation has been working more than 20 years towards this goal; supports mentally handicapped people for education, social life, job trainings and employment. We believe that these individuals who are just “Different”, can change/clear away negative perception about them in society by themselves. Our motto is: “We are just different and we are here!”
IZEV has supported more than 500 children and adults who are mentally handicapped, in domains of education, social life and job training.
Today we are working in İZEV Bağımsız Yaşam Evi with 25 mentally handicapped people together.
In our social networks we have almost 2200 likes for our Facebook page and 820 followers for Twitter account.
There are 22 volunteers in Bağımsız Yaşam Evi who give education and organize some activities.
