VIA is looking for help with fund-raising
We are planning to organise 2 - 3 short term projects this year. There are great teams working on them and a lot of energy and enthusiasm put into it.
Elin in Jordan
Elin, a VIA volunteer who was the coordinator of the Asylum seeker centrum project that VIA did in Almelo during the summer is heading for a new experience. She will participate in a long term volunteering project in Jordan organized by SCI, where she will be volunteering in a refugee camp with Syrian refugees.
