Time. It is one of the best gifts that we could give to somebody. The time to listen more than we could speak. 

 

The story behind the video.

I was invited to take videos for the event on the 23rd of May. I am using a samsung galaxy S6 mobile phone and with the help of a commercial tripod, I think I have managed to capture great moments that day. It was a special day for all to have a "hyggelig" time. Twelve different volunteer groups under Frivillig Center Fredensborg Kommune in Northsjælland Denmark presented their advocacies and activities. Vera Wetlesen, the center leader for Frivilligcenter Fredensborg for more than six years has briefly explained the vision and mission of the center.

 

One of the highlights was Mette Frederiksen's "turbo visit" and she was happy to have met and talked to the people behind every group who dedicates their time to come to the center and gather regularly to conduct their activities. Frivilligcenter Fredensborg arranges leadership courses from time to time to the members of the center.

There are about 40 volunteer groups in the center itself.

 

Mette Frederiksen is a member of the Member of the Parliament Social Democratic Party (Medlem af Folketinget Socialdemokratiet).

 

Thomas Lykke Pedersen, the mayor of the municipality was also present and he was the one who introduced the Frivillig Center in Fredensborg.

More about volunteer work.

We may have different reasons why we do volunteer work like socialization, networking, or merely a self-fulfillment. In my own perspective, being a volunteer is a social thing that gives one the opportunity to meet people with a willingness to share what they know, skills or be better at doing something together and promotes individual growth.

As a foreigner who came to Denmark, I found out that working together with social volunteer groups has made me feel home. I have met Vera Wetlesen, the center leader of Frivillig center Fredensborg in September 2015 and she became one of my mentors. Eventually, she welcomed me to her family and from then on our friendship grew fondly.

On April 2016, I was introduced to Annie Thygesen, the formand/leader of the volunteer group Dansk Folkehjælp "familie netværk" in Fredensborg. We arrange activities for families that are registered as part of a program for a year. I personally render volunteer services like cooking and hair cutting.

Hi. This blogsite is not an advertising page. I solely own it and it is my pleasure to write, share, improve my writing and research skills, learn and help in promoting the care for our environment in my special way.

 

The people, incidents and things that I feature are meant to serve awareness to everybody, especially to young people.  My passion in writing and research has pushed me to have my own homepage. I am making a list of research about different topics from time to time and hoping to reach those people with:

 

Inspirational thoughts, love for music, art, culture (food, education, habits/practices), well-being (wellness; mind & spirituality) and environment (environment & technology). On the other hand, promoting these subjects connects to the social welfare of the individual, their development and exploration.
