Venla Harkonen       

I'm a second-year business student at the Georgia Institute of Technology studying abroad in Hungary this summer. I've gotten the amazing opportunity to intern with the Roots & Wings Foundation and participate in the Swimathon event this year. I'm excited to apply my knowledge from America and make an impact abroad. My personal challenge is to learn something new while fundraising for the community I will join this summer. My goal is to teach myself how to dance a traditional Hungarian folk dance and choreograph a 2-minute dance. Thank you for any and all support!

Swimathon is a four-week community fundraising campaign and an event in which ambassadors raise funds for a good cause, undertaking individual challenges in return. The campaign has been organized by the Ferencváros Community Foundation since 2017, which, after collecting the grants and after deducting 9% for management costs, concludes grant agreements with the participating organizations and transfers the donations.
