Since its creation, EIG has been actively involved in both local and international (youth) projects. The organisation has already successfully implemented a few KA105 mobilities of its own together withmore than 30 as a partner in Turkey. As a result of positive feedbacks from its partners in projects coordinated by EIG, have developed a broad partnership network across Europe. EIG is also a member of the Active Youth Partner Network (an international network for youth NGOs). We follow our four core values in everything we do:
1) commitment –meaning we offer it our all;
2) transparency – we work with and for the public;
3) positivity – we see opportunities rather than problems;
and 4) passion – we want to make the world a better place.
It’s easy to write these principles down on paper, but it’s far more difficult to put them into practice.
EIG knows how important non-formal education is and hence incorporates experienced trainers in it. We assure that professionals with relevant experience and a proven record (in youth work and/or the project’s topic) will be working with us as before. We also counton a large pool of volunteers (data is collected according to the
LPPD in Turkey) and potential partners to ensure that:
1) the project is implemented smoothly;
2) the dissemination activities meet the targeted groups
The projects EIG takes on, as a rule, focus on demanding and sensitive issues (e.g. inclusion of minorities and disadvantaged groups). Hence, we look forward to the challenges offered by the projects.

ACTIVITIES AND EXPERIENCE

EIG has been actively involved in local and international (youth) projects since the very start of its existence. EIG has been partner in more than 65 KA105 projects and coordinated dissemination of each project successfully. Organization now has a lot of experience running youth programs. For example, EIG has variety of youth projects funded by the European Commission and EU Council, EIG has implemented aproject called “Rural Entrepreneurship Heroes” a KA105 project in 2017, also contracted for 2 other KA105 project ”Safety is NOT Automatic” in 2019 R2 and ”Capoeira Can do All!” in 2019 R3 however these have been waiting to be implemented. As well partnering currently with ”Transforming COVID-19 into anopportunity: new inclusive digital jobs and training for your people in the creative sector ” a KA227 project, ”Sport without Boundaries” a Erasmus+ Sport project. We’ve used it to coordinate further events to raise public consciousness about the current issues of hate speech, sexism, and discrimination. Aside from that, we had “Youth Talks” with international youth NGO volunteers once a month. We addressed various social issues with youth during “Youth Talks” and introduced Erasmus+ and ESC opportunities. We’ve been organising “Youth Talks” online since the pandemic. This knowledge will allow us to contribute to the goals of future Erasmus+ projects. Furthermore, EIG collaborates with other European NGOs and foreign organizations to guide and assist others in hosting youth initiatives in a variety of countries, foster cultural diversity, and contribute to positive social changes across Europe. We arecurrently assisting in the organizing of Erasmus+  youth initiatives in Poland, Malta, and Sweden on topics such as ecology, healthy lifestyles, social inclusion, rural cultures, diversity, ethnic minorities’ issues, and more. We are also educating local residents about the benefits of such initiatives as well as the importance of the problems that are being raised. By definition, our goal is to not only solve the problem, but also to educate local communities about 1) the benefits of such funds/project, and 2) the seriousness of the issues raised. As a result, EIG pays close attention to every detail and performs a wide range of tasks. From the initial stages of the research to the implementation and presentation of results. Such a mindset and set of skills are essential for any project.
