IWitness Experience 2018

September 21, 2017
The IKEA Foundation’s IWitness programme gives small groups of IKEA co-workers a life-changing chance to visit programmes connected to IKEA’s Good Cause campaigns, so they can explore how our partnerships help children and families around the world. The blog is a place for them to share their photos, videos and thoughts while they’re on their trips, so all co-workers and customers can see how we and our partners work together to help children create better opportunities for themselves and their families.
