Hayata Sarıl

Hayata Sarıl is a social initiative that is born in February 2017 with the vision of ‘a Rehabilitation Center’ for the homeless and who live in poverty.

The aim of this association is to help the homeless to restore their lives and get back on their feet again. During the day, customers come to the restaurant, eat a meal, and pay for it. In the evening, homeless people can have free dinner in the restaurant. Every month, a famous chef prepares a meal with their team and offers a unique experience to their customers. 

What We Do

Our volunteers help Hayata Sarıl Lokantası with preparing tables, serving food, and cleaning the place.

What We Need

Anyone who would enjoy working in a restaurant setting is welcome! Volunteers with Turkish speaking skills are important but not mandatory.


We help the restaurant every Wednesday and Saturday.
