Within the framework of the Budget Line YOUTH issued by the European Commission Directorate General Education and Culture, KESSA DIMITRA participated in the Youth Exchange Program 4 DIFFERENT FOR ONE AIM, which took place in Nevsehir, Turkey. The youth exchange was coordinated by the Sema Yazar Youth Foundation,which is headquartered in Ankara.

The project aimed at the implementation of two large-scale activities:

  • Installation of 37 laundry mats with 10 washing machines each, in 12 prefabricated houses' settlements, which aimed at the development of hygiene support measures in the settlements.

The project aimed at the alleviating of the suffering of the earthquake victims through the provision of essential relief items and psychological support, alongside the strengthening of friendship and solidarity between the people of Europe and Turkey.

The project was designed in order to support the organisation and operation of the two Social Centres with various cultural and training activities, thus contributing to the Hellenic - Turkish approximation on the level of Civil Society, exposing simultaneously the centres’ personnel to European Practices through the transfer of know how.
