What is Sininauhasäätiö?
Sininauhasäätiö is working towards reducing homelessness in Finland. Our customers come from various situations, and our job is to give them hope. Our work is based on “housing first” -principle. According to the Housing First principle, the best way to help people is to facilitate everyone a safe place to stay, whatever problems they have, together with professionals who can help and with whom they can seek support. Read more about the housing first principle in Inês Oliveira´s blog: Housing first for Beginners.
Sininauhasäätiö offers various kinds of volunteer work amidst the homeless, immigrants, or the otherwise disadvantaged ones. You can work as a volunteer both occasionally or regularly, you decide what works best for you. We offer introduction to your work, education, regular volunteer meetings, necessary support during your work, and also recreational activities. Every volunteer signs a contract and is insured while working. In the end you will receive a volunteering certificate and vast amounts of new experience.
We also offer a possibility of doing multiple open badges, that help you to demonstrate your competences for employers. Open badges might also be regarded as part of your studies.
