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.

Until when? The great debt with mental health

Until when? The great debt with mental health

In a year where we all felt the importance of mental health, where we experienced the problems of confinement, and where our ways of living were in check, we believe that it is important to continue fighting for the real implementation of the mental health law in our country.

"There is just something about this city and this country that sweeps you off your feet the moment you land at the airport. This country most definitely has a heartbeat of its own. Everything moves about 3 times faster than what you’re used to and this is coming from a Singaporean who’s used to life in a big city. I wanted to experience a world so different from my own. To be thrown out of my comfort zone and to learn independently."⠀ - Yasmeen Munira 💚 @westandtallll

Marin ready for the action at the soup kitchen some years ago 🍳🍲⠀ @marincloix3??? ⠀ The soup kitchen cooks for the kindergarten and the people from the neighborhood. Thus, this organization is based on working with families and children between months and 3-year-olds, supporting them in their growing and development process, with a team of professionals and social workers. This Community Center was founded in 1994 and began as a soup kitchen until it expanded into a kindergarten with the help of the mothers from the area.⠀ ⠀ The main goal of the Community Center is to offer the children's families a place of education and integral support. Moreover, the kitchen and center help to compensate for these families' economic situation. It is a place of exchange between teachers, social workers, parents, and volunteers from the area and from Voluntario Global that work together for the safe upbringing of the children.⠀ ⠀ When helping at the Soup Kitchen, you learn to appreciate the value of the small things, how to truly connect with people, and the power that these relationships can have on your life and the lives of others, on the communities and the future. It doesn't matter where you're from, what language you speak, what kind of house you live in, or what kind of job you have. In the end, we are all human and we get so mixed up in focussing on other unimportant aspects that we forget that deep down we're all the same. You will realize that even the smallest thing you do, can make someone else's day. Working at the soup kitchen will also give you a wider understanding of Argentinean culture and history.⠀ ⠀ These are the soft skills that volunteers are most likely to develop during the volunteer period at the soup kitchen: ⠀ ⠀ Autonomy⠀ Confidence⠀ Critical Thinking⠀ Decision Making⠀ Empathy⠀ Ethics and Work Commitment⠀ Flexibility⠀ Initiative⠀ Open-mindedness⠀ Multicultural Awareness⠀ Responsibility⠀ Stress Management⠀ Self Awareness⠀ Team Work⠀ ⠀ Learn more about this project on our website!
