Volunteering – why is it important?
The Greek philosopher Aristotle once said that the essence of life is “to serve others and do good”. Serving and helping each other and different communities benefits not just others but ourselves, too and if you have ever volunteered at any organisation, you have probably experienced the sense of purpose and the reward feeling that comes with it. If human rights is a field that you feel strongly and passionately about and you want to contribute to ending one of the gravest human right violations – human trafficking, then join our team! Send your CV and brief motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us about your super powers!

Kristina Ronkova has graduated Psychology and Criminal Behaviour in the UK. She has then undertaken different trainings in Psychology and Psychotherapy, as well as attended training in Life coaching skills by the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge. In 2018 Kristina returns to Bulgaria with the desire to use the acquired skills and experience to develop and work on social causes in Bulgaria. She has participated in the organization of the first conference in Bulgaria on the topic of "Public-Private Partnership in Combating Trafficking in Human Beings: How Government and Business Deal with Trafficking in Human Beings in Supply Chains", organized by the National Commission for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings (NCCTHB) and the British Embassy in Sofia. Kristina has worked on initiatives for raising awareness of "modern slavery" and ways of stopping it. She believes that when the heart and mind work in the same direction, the results follow them. The recognition and development of human potential is her passion, which Kristina manages to apply in the various teams she works with, often through corporate social responsibility programs.
