Instead of Holiday Season’s gifts and cards Patria traditionally makes a donation to support third-sector work to prevent social exclusion of young people. This year Patria’s Consultative committee has decided to give a donation to the Vamos youth programme organised by Helsinki Deaconess Institute.

Vamos provides activity for people aged between 16 and 29 who have dropped out from school or have no work. The objective is to help these young people find a direction for their future, meaningful things to do, a study place or a job. Read more about Vamos youth programme in Patria magazine.
