Susanna - Freiwillige bei Grenzenlos
Susanna, Volunteer

Welcome to follow Voices of Volunteers – a blog which explores volunteering from many perspectives.

I’m Susanna, an ESC (European Solidarity Corps) volunteer from Finland. I’m currently doing my six-month project in Vienna, Maailmanvaihto from Finland as a sending organisation and Grenzenlos as a hosting organisation. As a part of my work at Grenzenlos, I’m publishing this blog. My aim is to explore different sides of volunteering and make many voices and points of view to be heard – I will reflect my own experiences as well as interview other people. If you want to get in touch with me send an email to: volunteer@grenzenlos.or.at. I hope you will enjoy!
