Düşler Akademisi

Düşler Akademisi is in Çukurbağ village, about 10 km outside of Kaş. For those of you who may not know about this place take time to visit them and get some exercise on the high rope course or ride the ponies through the village.

This review is in German but google translate does it well:
Include the Excluded | Auf der Suche nach dem Anfang einer Reise ? Türkei

The photos do not convey what they have accomplished. If you have the time, perhaps volunteer some of it.

Thank you for the English links. We lived in Istanbul for over 7 years. There was a rather large school for the blind a few blocks from where we used to live in the European side in Emirgan. I would get on the bus to work and several blind students would be at the bus stop and get on. I saw acts of kindness toward them nearly daily by bus drivers and passengers alike while I was there. I always had a hard time getting around on foot in Stamboul, I
cannot imagine doing it blind but somehow they did; white canes and all.

Re: Düşler Akademisi

There was a blind woman near where I used to live, one day my 7 year old niece was with me and we saw the blind woman with her stick and my niece asked me how does the blind lady know which house is hers. It really is amazing what blind people do

(Translation)
Dear Friends...
At the end of a long journey, count down has started for our Academy's opening!
It's like yesterday since we did our first launch in November 2008 in Santral İstanbul.
Our opening date is June 13, 2014.
It all started with an empty wheelchair falling to the sea in Kaş...
We are here again, in Kaş.
Our school is opening and you can see its pictures below!
You all know that this is happening thanks to your continuous supports...
Love from the Mediterranean.
Ercan
