Fethiye International Group or FIG is a group of volunteers that run a charity that raises money for the benefit of local children.
In 2003, a group of people who had adopted Fethiye as their home wanted to give something back to the community within which they now lived. A mix of foreign and Turkish residents met to discuss the possibilities and decided to do something to help the local children. In January 2004 FIG was born. Over the years FIG has grown from a weekly book swap to an active part of the community. Today’s FIG includes a Charity shop, weekly coffee mornings, regular craft fairs, other fundraising events and much more.
