Advocacy & Action for Children

Annamaija Paloniemi, Finland

"My volunteering work in 2011 with Joy for Children-Uganda was one of the most interesting and memorable experiences of my life,” says Annamaija Paloniemi of Finland.
It greatly contributed to my understanding of the factors underlying child poverty. Realizing how unequal opportunities at the global and grass-roots levels affect individuals and communities was eye-opening. I am very happy to have had the chance to meet so many wonderful people involved in JFCU’s activities and can only hope that I have given something in return as well.
