Our first projects
From the 2nd to the 12th of December 2019, Helsinki played host to a remarkable event called Moniviikko, which brought people from all walks of life together. Moniviikko showcased the vibrant diversity of cultures that exist within Helsinki, making it accessible to everyone.
The main objective of Moniviikko was to promote equality and community within the city. The event was designed to provide an opportunity for people from different backgrounds to come together, learn about each other's cultures, and celebrate their differences. By doing so, Moniviikko aimed to further enrich Helsinki's already thriving multicultural identity.
Overall, Moniviikko was a resounding success, bringing people together in a spirit of unity and community. It was a testament to the power of diversity and the positive impact it can have on society. HOH remains committed to promoting multiculturalism and equality in Helsinki and beyond, and looks forward to organizing more events like Moniviikko in the future.
Look&run is an outdoor quest game that has become a popular activity in Helsinki. The game involved teams competing to solve riddles, find locations, and perform funny and challenging tasks. The game was suitable for people of all ages and abilities and has been designed to provide a fun and interactive experience for all players.
The game was organized by a team of passionate volunteers who were committed to promoting outdoor activities and bringing people together. Since its inception, Look&run has become increasingly popular, attracting more and more people. The game has created a positive and inclusive atmosphere that encourages teamwork and camaraderie.
Look&run is a testament to the power of outdoor activities and the positive impact they can have on people's lives.
As an organization, we are proud to have played a role in organizing and promoting Look&run. We believe that outdoor activities are an essential part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and we will continue to support and promote initiatives that encourage people to get outside and explore the world around them.
Refufin began as a spontaneous response to the Ukraine-Russia conflict, with Darya Gulik organizing a bus to transport refugees. After receiving hundreds of requests for help, Refufin expanded to provide free bus rides, chat support, and accommodations to refugees. With House of Helsinki's support, Refufin gained access to a network of partners and resources, and has recently secured project funding for three years. Refufin is now focused on developing an organized volunteering framework to provide effective support to refugees and promote a more compassionate society.
