Serve the City’s New Year’s Resolutions

 In STC Luxembourg

Here we go, 2016 is finally here, a new page to be written and new resolutions to be made! These days we are full of energy and ideas, that we just couldn’t wait to share with you what we are thankful for, where we want to go and what we have accomplished so far.

During the past year, Serve the City has tried to be present at multiple levels. We didn’t want to compromise local needs, and therefore we increased the number of partnerships with local NGOs. Our team has grown consistently, which helped us cover a lot of ground during the times of crisis. Thanks to the support of our volunteers, who have generously donated their time and resources, Serve the City has managed to cover many projects that otherwise would have been left on the to do list. A big thank you goes out to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the country has demonstrated that many people have a desire to volunteer and help others, and we look forward to making more of this happen!

The new year also brings new challenges and opportunities. 2015 was an eventful year for Europe, as it was at the center of the international refugee crisis, and in times of need Luxembourg has been very receptive and willing to help. After the initial emotional bond we all felt with the refugee situation, we know that the most challenging part is yet to come, but Serve the City has already planted promising projects in 2015 and we look forward to seeing them grow in 2016.

At Serve the City we see that small actions can lead you to a better place above and beyond views and ideology. We believe that, in order to shape a richer society, differences need to be embraced. We hope that certain news media that you come across will serve as a simple reminder that there is a lot you can do with Serve the City and that many people doing small things together can make a big difference.


STC 2016 Resolutions

“I had a great year in 2015 with a lot of new things in my life, I wish for myself and others that they experience change because even though it might seem uncomfortable and scary at first, it makes you grow. It opens up new opportunities: at work, in volunteering, in relationships. My resolution is to embrace change and find the positive aspect of it, there is always one!”

-Nissrine, Serve the City Partnership Coordinator

“We also need to make sure that we all stand by our common values, and that we embrace diversity. Love and solidarity are key, and others differences can teach us a lot. Remember, Luxembourg is a great example of tolerance, it is a country that hosts a mixture of different nationalities with half of its population being of foreign nationality.”

-Melanie, Serve the City Partnership Coordinator

“My new years resolution is to say yes to everything and just go for it! That is I guess the personal message but can be applied to so many things. No matter how crazy the idea or how unrealistic we might find it – we just have to go for it. There is never a try – either you do or you don’t!”

Catalina Geib, Serve the City
