Without our International Volunteers we can’t even imagine how to run Tools for Solidarity workshop in Belfast.
After all this years, TFS is still not used to the sadness of letting our international volunteers – that come to Belfast for a year – go. Today we have to say goodbye to our french volunteer Antoine.
Tools for Solidarity gives lots of opportunities to its volunteers. It is the exact reason why sometimes list of all tasks and projects one person did during his/her stay with us is enormous. Our volunteers are creative and mindful young people so that is a nice experience for both of us. We get knowledge from them and they receive some from us.
Antoine was one of these volunteers. He was a part of the sewing section and most of the machines that came to the workshop he probably repaired. It was also him who made lots masks for key workers and friends of organisation during lockdown in March/April 2020. Apart from that Antoine helped to train new volunteers and was an excellent teacher!
We wish Antoine all the best, and hope you know that you will be always more than welcome for any type of visit in the workshop!
