WATAN is a leading Civil Society Organization delivering emergency relief, third sector support and long-term international development projects.
WATAN is committed to helping people and reviving communities. WATAN is independent, non-governmental, apolitical and nonsectarian organization.
We operate several integrated programs with the aim of addressing humanitarian emergency response and sustainable community revival through holistic and transformative approach.
We believe in the role of Civil Society in the various phases of intervention. Thus, we invest in supporting and developing Civil Society in our areas of reach. We also create platforms for coordination and integration to maximize impact on communities served.
To achieve our goal, we seek to be the preferred partner for international agencies in areas of specialization and reach.
WATAN was established formally in Turkey in 2012 building on an extensive voluntary-base community development work going back to 2006.
