Under the leadership of Mustafa Bektaş, guest houses and cultural centers were established in 9 different villages of Nallıhan, - a district hosting the Nallıhan Bird Sanctuary and Juliopolis Ancient City. The number of tourists coming to the district was increased from 1,700 to 72,000 as a result of the projects of the association. Nallıhan Tourism Volunteers Association reanimated handcrafts of point lace and silk cocoon, which is already done by the women living in the district.
