We were delighted to welcome Sandra Kourtsounioti to our team earlier this month. Sandra has joined us as part of the European Solidarity Corps project, funded by the EU. For the next 12 months Sandra will be with us focussing on preparations and delivery at Common Ground international camp 2022. See Sandra’s introduction message below:
Hello Woodcraft Folk Members and Supporters!
I am Sandra Kourtsounioti and I am the new ESC Common Ground volunteer for the next 12 months. I am from Athens, Greece, I am 29 years old and I am based in London.
Before coming here, I was working as an educator for refugee children on a Greek island. I have volunteered in various NGOs in the past with a focus on education, mainly through non formal activities. In the past I have participated in around 10 Erasmus + trainings and youth exchanges throughout Europe about non formal education, human rights and environmental issues. I strongly believe that education can bring social change. My dream is to always support and defend human rights through education, teamwork, solidarity and respect.
I am grateful to be in this organization that represents my values and that puts children in the lead role. I want to learn as much as possible, develop myself in many ways and work with love and dedication.
See you at our next camps and of course at Common Ground next summer!
