  1. Hello there!
    I would like to apply, my name is Tiago, I’m italo-brazilian doing a master in Peace and Development Work in Sweden. I ‘m 28 years old. I had experience with kids who has down syndrome in elementary school, in that time my school used to have a special work & class involving them and I participated on it during a month, we worked together with them and listened their own experiences.
    Another opportunity I had but its not directly involved with mental healthy but can be related was that I worked closely with deaf people from my city at the time in a Baptist Church (even if I wasn’t baptist). We tried to include this community in society, reading and using sign language to understand their dilemas.
    I’m interested to volunteering, share my experience and my english is intermediated advanced.

    Kind Regards,
    Tiago Soares Bedin
