Inspired by the “Orange the World” campaign of the United Nations Women against gender-based violence, a group of people gathered to adapt this international activism to Izmir and launched the campaign of “Orange Izmir”. 16 days of activism was a great success and has encouraged them to pursue their aims with bigger enthusiasm and ambition in a more organized way. That is how they decided to establish Turuncu (Orange) Assocation, with the leadership of Ms Isinsu Kestelli who has successfully run several social responsibility projects both personally and as the Chairperson of Izmir Commodity Exchange.
Turuncu (Orange) Association will continue to develop projects on gender equality as well as improvement of socioeconomic status of women, girls, LGBTI+ individuals and refugees in the society.
KestelInn Hotel crew who has adopted the aims of Turuncu Association, pursue the basic pillars in all operations and process to struggle against all types of discrimination and gender based violence.
