You never know how people can find you and your project. In any case, we are always happy to welcome those who wish to volunteer in Belfast with us.
Welcome to the team, Birgit!
Teacher for disabled children, Birgit decided to take a sabbatical at the start of the year. This year full of adventures she decided to spend in some parts of the Europe. However, instead of resting and being a tourist she realised that can do volunteering work at the same time!
Birgit joined us a week ago and shared a wee story how she found out about our organisation. Apparently, she met our former volunteer in England. He was a Tools for Solidarity’s volunteer in Belfast many years ago. She was so fascinated by aims of the project that decided to give us a call!
Due to current situation with the virus and many restrictions that are placed by the government we didn’t know if it was a right time for a new volunteer to join us. Nevertheless we were busy preparing for the shipment and barely had any space! However, Birgit’s story inspired us so much that we decided to be her next destination on the journey.
We are so happy to welcome a new German volunteer in the workshop. Birgit has joined us for a couple of weeks. However, we hope she will enjoy her time with us and share her experience with others afterwards .
