Volunteering - Experiments in Social Entrepreneurship
Fundraiser and Volunteer
Since my late twenties, I organize fundraising campaigns and manage community projects with focus on children, education and health. My goal is to create social impact and alleviate poverty by improving education and health conditions in developing communities. My motivation is the belief that social issues are shared responsibilities and we can all act as change agents - one act of kindness at a time.
Duolingo Global Ambassador
Since 2018, I organize free language exchange events for learners of Portuguese and Spanish in Vienna. My goal is to give students who use Duolingo, the world's largest online language learning App, a chance to practice their language skills beyond the screen. My motivation is the belief that free education can change the world. This is the Duolingo Events page.
Free Hugs Vienna Organizer
Since 2013, I organize the social initiative Free Hugs Vienna. My goal is to provide a platform for like-minded people to brighten up other people's lives with free hugs. My motivation is to see smiles on people’s faces. I believe we make the world a better place one hug and smile at a time. This is how I became a Free Hugger.
