[English version below] Valeria Gracia, fundadora de Voluntario Global, habla sobre la idea detrás de los proyectos en los que se involucran. Voluntario Global cree que la participación de la comunidad es importante para el proceso de creación. Creación de nuevos proyectos, creación de vínculos entre los vecinos y voluntarios, creación de nuevos espacios para compartir y pensar en el futuro. Todas las actividades que lleva a cabo Voluntario Global se basan en su experiencia previa con la comunidad misma.

En Voluntario Global pensamos que las comunidades deben trabajar juntas para pensar en sus necesidades y en cómo llevar a cabo las soluciones. La comunidad necesita compartir y pensar a partir de su propia realidad y de allí comenzar a construir. Para lograr esto, los espacios comunitarios son importantes para que las personas se puedan reunir y discutir acerca de sus problemas, son importantes para lograr la participación activa que alentamos y tratamos de generar siempre que sea posible. Porque fundamentalmente la participación viene de allí, de la gente, de los vecinos, de la comunidad.

Estos espacios son los que nos ayudan a trabajar y construir dentro de las comunidades, espacios donde la gente trabaja (como cooperativas), donde aprenden, donde comen o donde se reúnen y discuten. Pero lo más importante es que estos espacios deben permitir a la gente ser escuchada y estar unidos para sentirse integrados y ser parte de lo que hacen.

 

[ENGLISH] Valeria Gracia, founder of Voluntario Global, talks about the idea behind the projects where they get involved. Voluntario Global believes that community participation is important for the process of creation. Creation of new projects, creation of bonds among neighbors and volunteers, creation of new spaces for sharing and thinking about the future. All of the activities that Voluntario Global leads, are based on their previous experience with the community itself.

We, at Voluntario Global, think that all communities should work together to think about their needs and how to carry out the solutions. Community needs to share and think from their own reality and start building from there. In order to accomplish this, community spaces are important for people to gather and discuss about their problems. We believe these spaces in the community are very important for active participation (which we encourage) and we try to generate these spaces whenever possible. As we think transformation comes from there, from the people, the neighbors, the community. 

These spaces are what we help building working within the communities. Spaces for people to work, to gather, to eat or learn. But most importantly, these spaces need to allow people to be heard and united as a whole.
