“Why did you come to Estonia? How did you end up in Pärnu?” These were quite frequently asked questions I heard after I had chosen a project in a rather small, surprisingly modern country with a beautiful landscape but quite bad weather. Frankly, it was just a lucky coincidence that I came here, to a town where I have been the only volunteer for eight months.
My name is Paraskevi and I’m from Greece. I spent the last year (February 2020- February 2021) as a volunteer in JUKS which is located in Tallinn, Estonia. Down below I’ll try to express how my volunteering experience was and I’ll try to make you feel somehow the things I felt.
