Project REGI has had really productive first four months: we’ve organized and participated in different events, spread our knowledge and messages and conducted a survey to map the needs of local Estonians.
Doing all this we had great help from the students of Turku university of applied science. They had an important role reaching hundreds of target group members and informing them about our project, its goals, activities, but also about the situation of Estonians in Finland on a broader scale. In December our students shared their experience with other students and with broader audience at a fair organized at Turku AMK.
It were the students who created our mascot, granny Helmi, who is a familiar figure for both Estonians and Finns – they just love their grannies!
During first months of year 2016, we’ll focus on group activities, trainings for both migrants and professionals and arranging useful materials for different target groups. In autumn, we are planning to organize a bigger event. So stay tuned and enjoy your Christmas!
