Üldinfo

I want to contribute to ensuring that the Estonian way of life, the Estonian language and culture last through the ages and that our country will be full of children. In my vision, it should be possible to live a full life in Estonia both in the big city and in the country. By preserving and supporting the different regions of Estonia, we will make the whole of Estonia stronger and more successful. The people of Estonia will achieve prosperity through education.
