I am the last co-worker to be in Vilnius as my trip was the longest. I am taking the day to regroup my thoughts, walk the city and experience a culture I may never be privy to again. I have enjoyed all my learning’s, felt some emotional anxiety over abandoned children and I am hopeful that IKEA will make a difference in the children’s lives who are at risk. I only wish I could give them all the safe environment they all so desperately need.
Thank you IKEA for giving this opportunity to me. I will remember this trip always and know that we are doing the right thing by supporting Save The Children Lithuania. I noticed the IKEA store being built outside of the Vilnius airport and hope to hear stories one day of Lithuanian young adults getting a fresh start in life with a career at IKEA.
