Our first day in Lithuania was one of questions, introductions and learnings. At breakfast we met some new co-workers and by lunch time we were old friends.
We spent most of our afternoon in Save The Children’s Office. We quickly learned they had some very specific objectives that they planned to meet by 2015. The most important being the reduction of violence against children, reduction of social neglect, children’s right governances and the continuing strengthening of their own national office.
Tomorrow we will see first-hand how the IKEA Foundation with their funding will be able to help with these objectives. Our drive will begin early to the outskirts of Vilnius, but know that all the co-workers are ready to Iwitness things first hand.
We will keep you posted!
