The days on the calendar flip onward! After this last big lockdown, we should hopefully see light at the end of the tunnel. May brings the promise of leaves on the trees, flowers blooming and birds chirping. In fact, May is named for the Greek goddess, Maia, who oversaw the growth of plants.

During the many months of lockdown, the UNWG carries on with our activities, mostly online, through the internet. We had a colorful presentation of ‘Viva Mexico’ by the Ambassador, a gardening session cooking lessons, language classes, etc.  More exciting programs are taking place in My. Please find the May programs in this page.

The Charity Review Committee is well underway with the task of reviewing applications. I sat in on the Zoom meeting and was impressed with all that goes on behind the scenes. CoViD-19 has made everything more difficult, but the Committee doesn’t let that stop them and their valuable work.

Life in May is getting more joyful day by day! Please be safe. We would love to hear from you. Our email is: unwgviennapresident@gmail.com

  Kiosk 25 anniversary  
     
  KIOSK 25th Anniversary  
  The UNWG Kiosk has reached a milestone – 25th since it was started by the UNWG Vienna..
The Kiosk is the daily fundraiser of the UNWG. A unique venture in the UNWG profile. It is the second biggest fundraiser after the Bazaar. The shop and its presence in Gate 1, is a daily showcase of the UNWG and our primary objective: fundraising for children worldwide.

Over the years, many committed volunteers have contributed to sales, designers, procurement and offered training workshops. Here our visitors can find a variety of items from bestsellers that are carried year after year, to one time designer special items. There are always find UNWG Logo ware, such as T-shirts, Notebooks, pens or mugs. Also, a selection of Austrian souvenirs from Klimt silk scarves to Austrian cookbooks.  A variety of handmade gift items from other parts of the world: Thailand, India, Malaysia, African continent or Indian scarves, Chinese silk and more. In some years, one may find exquisite handmade quilts from the UNWG quilting group, and one always find handmade Jewelry at the Kiosk, created specially by volunteers. In recent years, the Kiosk strives to promote sustainability in our environment. Biodegradable pens, pencils, notepads, VIC recycled banner bags, cups and more. The Kiosk also partners with small craftsmen groups in Austria, including an integration of disabilities programmers by selling their wares, while helping charities in other parts of the world.
 
 
Due to the pandemic the Kiosk has to stop operating at VIC Gate 1. We hope to resume as soon as the pandemic is declared over.
