Hope has been in and out of Thessaloniki for the past two years whilst completing her Masters. She has 5+ years of experience in humanitarian projects, having worked in Bolivia, Nepal, and the UK.
Introducing herself, Hope says:
“Using my organisational skills is a big part of my role in this project. I oversee vital collaborations with other local NGOs to improve service provision for our population, as well as organise and apply for funds, oversee volunteer wellbeing and safeguarding, and assist with day-to-day operations. A lot of my work is in the background and behind the scenes, I see myself as a key figure in ensuring the project runs smoothly on a daily basis, and is able to continue and grow in the long term.”
