  2. Thanks Maija for including our service in here!

    Webvolunteering is in a very early phase and we would very much appreciate feedback and suggestions on how to improve the service and how to increase user base. Seems that volunteering over internet is very new thing to NGOs and thus it’s challenging for them to innovate suitable projects.

    But feedback has been encouraging and we are 100% sure that this is the dominant way to do volunteering in the future!
