Meet Irene, our EU Aid Volunteer based in Kutaisi to support People in Need Georgia!

Please say a few words about yourself, experience, and previous positions occupied etc.

 

Hello, my name is Irene, I am an Italian EUAID Volunteer and I am very happy to be deployed in Georgia. Until 3 weeks ago, I was the coordinator of a Refugee Centre in Milano, hosting 80 asylum seekers from Central-West Africa. Before that, I worked in Turkey as Head of International Relations for a Turkish University and I have been a volunteer on the Syria-Turkey Refugee Crisis on the border.

 

Could you tell us about EU AID Volunteer programme? What is it about? Until when will you stay in Georgia? What are the activities you are responsible for?


EUAID Volunteer Programme engages professionals from the sector of Humanitarian, Cooperation and Development from all EU. It does not have a limit age and it gives to the volunteers a great training covering fundamental issues connected with ECHO, EUAID and the Humanitarian world.

 

What was your main motivation for coming to Georgia?


I think that what really fascinated me of Georgia on the paper was the stunning nature and great oxygen availability. Now that I am here I realize that this is really a beautiful country, even beyond imagination.

 

How do you personally find the life here in Georgia?


I personally think that Georgia is a kind, welcoming and beautiful place to be as a foreigner.

 

What about your first impressions about Georgia?


Georgians are lovely and very polite. Landscapes are breathtaking and food is very tasty.

 

And what about the Mission?


The mission is one of the biggest mission for People in Need, it accompanies the transition of Georgia towards a self-sustainable civil society and economic development. I think a great job has been done, especially in the rural areas, which are the most forgotten ones.

 

What you think you personally can bring to People in Need Georgia?

 

A smile and a slice of Pizza.


Is there something from the Italy that you already miss here?


Parmesan cheese and, of course, my friends and my family which are the real heroes of my life.

ccupied etc.
