Who are we?

A Drop in the Ocean’s headquarters are situated in Oslo, but several of our employees are stationed in Greece. We have a number of coordinators and volunteer field workers at all of our locations. In Norway, we have volunteer administration staff and regional coordinators in various parts of the country. The board is the governning body of the organisation.
