Who we are

Who we are

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.

Make sure to read the full story! http://www.voluntarioglobal.org/en/travel-argentina/item/1524-fighting-to-keep-the-retirement-income-for-housewives-in-argentina 💪🏽🙋🏽💚🇦🇷 . . "On July 16th 2015, Argentina created a temporary retirement policy for informal workers, commonly known as “retirement income for housewives”. . . This provisional policy had its due date on july 23rd but current president, Mauricio Macri, prolonged it until 2022. Even though this could be seen as a positive step from the Macri administration, in the midst of a political reelection, there’s an ongoing discussion between Argentinians of why this needs to become a permanent law." . . #volunteeropportunities #volunteerwork #workabroad #nonprofit #volunteerprogram #volunteeringabroad #volunteers2019 #volunteertrip #travelwithpurpose #volunteertogether #servicelearning #giveback #criticalservicelearning #responsibletourism #travelcommunity #volunteercommunity #communityservice #buildcommunity #communitybuilding #communitydevelopment #socialchange #socialchangemakers #communityleaders #leadership
