Shahla Raza is the founder and manager of Yusra Community Center in Fatih, Istanbul. After sharing tea, taking a tour of the building, observing the participants, and volunteers’ interactive lessons with the immigrant children of the neighborhood, Ozlem came home with a lot of ideas and motivation. We invited Shahla Raza to UmAy for quality time to exchange ideas and learning more from her experiences. Thank you so much Günsu, Ozlem’s hardworking and conscientious student from Bogazici University, for volunteering there and introducing UmAy to Yusra Center.
