My name is Garance Robert de Massy, I am 16 years old and I have made a one-week internship at the Åland Islands Peace Institute. These five days were really interesting and enriching. I have learnt a lot about the Åland Islands and the ÅIPI. I really admire what they do and I am really interested in civil society work, so this internship was perfect for me.
I had the chance to participate a little bit on a project named “Nendre”; with the generous help of the workers of Peace Institute, I have created a French language brochure about one of the Peace Institute´s partner organizations in Lithuania and sent the brochure to potential partner organizations in France. I have also collected French language articles about the Åland Example for the webpage of the Institute. Moreover, they gave me the opportunity to participate in information sessions and meetings about the different programs or parts of the Peace Institute. Two weeks ago, I did not know the Åland Islands Peace Institute, and now, I am waiting to turn 18 years old to become a volunteer.
