Here I spent more of my EVS working time assisting in the daily office affairs and shop management, promoting the association and the shop, and traslating the organization web-site from Estonian to English.

During September 2012 some journalists from the national television came in the Tatari shop for make interviews for a TV program named "Kapital". The episod was focused on how a company is able to be social and can care about the environment and the people around them, and they also made an interview to me. Down here I put the link of the episode, my talk is around the minute 8th...enjoy it!!!!
