Hiiop! 100 years of volunteering
As Finland is celebrating its centenary of independence, we have started sponsoring a good cause. OP’s gift to the 100-year-old Finland is 100 person-years of volunteering. In honour of the jubilee year, all OP employees may do voluntary work for one day during their working hours. This represents half of the 100 person-year target. OP invites everybody in Finland to join in volunteering in order to accomplish the 100 person-year goal.
As part of the gift, OP launched a volunteer work exchange site, Hiiop100.fi, where you can easily find a suitable place to volunteer or gather help for voluntary activities you are organising.

It is one of the most comprehensive projects concerning the future of education and schools in the world.
