Koridoor is a social sharing economy platform that aims to link hosts and guests in Famagusta by facilitating social accommodation and social eating.
Koridoor views Famagusta as one big hotel, where each street is a Koridoor opening up to rooms for accommodation and kitchens for social eating. As such, we aim to develop an online platform that enables young people to utilize their available resources such as accommodation spaces and culinary skills to become a part of the local economy and develop their sense of community.
Through our platform, eligible community members can REGISTER their space and their resources, such as a spare bedroom, spare couch or kitchen as rooms and restaurants. Eligibility depends on a few factors such as abiding by the local taxation laws and property rights checks. On the other hand, the platform targets people abroad who wish to travel alternatively and live locally while on vacation.
However, we envision that Koridoor would be much more than a platform; it would be the basis for community cooperation. All people in the Koridoor community would know one another and they would be involved in the upgrading of the capabilities of their community capabilities and that of their utilized spaces. Trainings would be organized for their members on how to increase their capacities on different subjects such as being a good host, preparing food safely, and improving their utilized spaces. Guests would also become part of the community and could rely on them if they get lost, or if they need a ride or if they just want to chat with friendly face or have a walking-tour around the city.
In the long term, we hope Koridoor will help create a community to help young people build their capacities and skills collectively, create synergies and connect people from different cultures and communities, and decrease unemployment and increase self-employment among the young population.
