We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.
Our mission is to empower and connect local organizations to promote improvement for the whole community and take a unified approach to community development. We also aim to create a network between volunteers and local organizations in order to foster an exchange of culture and ideas which can help both to grow in different ways.
The organizations and communities where we work are the main pillars of Voluntario Global. Together with local organizations, we determine our objectives and the type of volunteer we need. Put simply, Voluntario Global could not exist without the organizations, as we work together for their development and growth.
If you're planning to volunteer abroad in Buenos Aires this year, here's your chance! Apply for a Community Builder Grant with Voluntario Global and get a USD500 credit to use in one of our long term programs. Applications are now open to volunteer with us in 2018!
Durant cette expérience de quatre mois où j’ai travaillé pour Voluntario Global, j’ai beaucoup appris. J’ai découvert un autre pays, une nouvelle culture et j’ai eu la chance de rencontrer des personnes du monde entier.
As winter time is getting closer, cold days become a reality. Our plants grow more slowly, but the activities in Pacheco continue.
Ce vendredi, 1er juin 2018, tous les volontaires et moi avons rendez-vous avec l’équipe de l’association et les membres de Pacheco pour participer à la Marche Fédérale pour le Pain et le Travail.
