House of Friendship, 22.5.-4.6.2023

Activity description:

The purpose of the host association is to practice welfare-promoting hospitality, regardless of religion, sexual or gender orientation or worldview, by promoting face-to-face dialogue, preventing exclusion, rejection and violence in all its forms. The Friendhsip Inn is a place based on Christian values offering short and long term visitors and residents a possibility to relax and recover. The volunteers will take part in manual maintenance and seasonal tasks indoors and outdoors. This is a community project suitable for volunteers interested in experiencing a place of good will, mutual respect, compassion and doing together.

Accommodation, food and transportation arrangements: 

The volunteers will stay in shared accommodation in the Friendship Inn. The meals will be cooked together and volunteers will join the daily tasks of the community. The place is located by a lake, so in the freetime the volunteers can go to sauna, swim, row a boat, SUP board as well as play outdoors games or boardgames. The place is located between Helsinki (100km) and Turku (75 km) and is easily accessible by bus which takes about one hour from Helsinki.

Participant profile:

The project is open for 18-30 year old EU citizens and residents, who are ready to get their hands dirty and do manual work. The project is located in the countryside, so it suits people who enjoy nature and outdoors, who like cooking and living together and are interested in sustainable lifestyle. We expect openess to diversity and respect for people from different backgrounds.

This is a good opportunity to taste community living. If you are interested in discussing and sharing thoughts with people from different backgrounds and walks of life this is a place for it.
