Volunteer life in Finland

Moi! Tervetuloa blogiin. 🙂 I’m Kyoko and 22 years old. I came from Japan and I live in Kotka as a ICYE volunteer. My voluntary work in Kotka is a daycare center for children (kindergarten). In my kindergarten we mainly communicate in English, but almost all children know Finnish, too. I would like to share my experience on my blog! Enjoy it!

The blog is from the season 2017–18. Kyoko participates in the International Cultural Youth Exchange (ICYE) program. Maailmanvaihto receives ICYE volunteers for volunteer periods of 6–12 months. Would you be interested in participating? Read more about the ICYE program and apply!
