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.

To understand how covid-19 affects social organizations, we interviewed Luz Mendez, one of the coordinators of Pacheco Community. Here's the conversation we had.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Flexibility (COVID-19 special edition)

Being flexible is understood as the ability to adapt to new environments and sudden changes. Being flexible is to face challenges without panicking, to face these situations with an open mind. It is about reflecting on the context and act according to it.

Let's Talk about Soft Skills: Critical Thinking⠀ By Milena Sapey⠀ ⠀ What do we understand for critical thinking? It is the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking. Critical thinking implicates analyzing, evaluating and processing information.⠀ ⠀ When we receive information we need to be active thinkers and not just accept everything right away, we need to think if this information is reliable and if it represents the entire picture.⠀ ⠀ As an organization, critical thinking is one of our key lines of action: we incite critical thinking and debate in everything we do. We strongly believe it is a way of learning and a tool for all of us that helps us to think of ways to work towards community development.⠀ ⠀ As critical thinking involves reflecting on our reality, volunteering is an ideal path to develop this skill. The whole idea of immersing yourself in a different culture helps to have a wider perspective on society.⠀ ⠀ Nowadays, especially in coronavirus times, it is essential to use critical thinking as a skill so we don't get trapped by fake news, mass media's chaos, and our own concerns. This is a topic we need to reflect on, don't you think? Everyone is sharing tips, pieces of advice, philosophic reflections, lines of actions, or doing live videos. We need to stop and think, who is talking, what's the source, and debate about it. Apparently, we have to switch to virtual life, but if only 59% of the worldwide population is connected to the internet, how is that going to work? We have to stay home, but in some houses, there are more than 5 people per room and we have more than 100 million homeless people in the world. Suddenly, prevention and promotion of health are important everywhere, so it took a pandemic situation to realize that, among other aspects.⠀ ⠀ Sometimes critical thinking can lead us to some negative thoughts about our society, but the key here is to reflect and think about what do we need to change and what can we do about it.⠀ ⠀ https://bit.ly/2RdqUWM

Another challenge for organizations: educating online. Everyone should have access to education and now, to technology, as a means to access education. Education as right. Technology as a right.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Flexibility (COVID-19 Special Edition)⠀ Written by Milena Sapey⠀ ⠀ Being flexible is understood as the ability to adapt to new environments and sudden changes. Being flexible is to face challenges without panicking, to face these situations with an open mind. It is about reflecting on the context and act according to it.⠀ Sometimes we think we are open-minded enough and flexible enough, but what happens when you arrive in a new country with different traditions, a different language, and different behaviors?⠀ You may see why flexibility is important when it comes to volunteering abroad, and how it can help you to develop this ability.⠀ If volunteering itself is challenging, what happens now that we can't leave our houses? The situation we are living worldwide with the COVID-19 challenges ourselves in ways we've never thought before, and we need to be more flexible than ever. We need to re-think our ways of being, of working, and the way society works.⠀ It is in this kind of situation that we realize how important soft skills are. When volunteering you can develop and improve all kinds of softs skills: personal, social, communicative, and work skills. Soft skills help us to operate daily and to face situations more effectively, and even though they are usually linked with the workplace, they are key when it comes to personal development.⠀ This is a clear example of how we are used to functioning in a certain way, and how difficult is to change everything we do. We need soft skills, we need to be flexible and creative. We need to think with a critical perspective about it. How can people sustain if everything stops? Which is our role as an organization? What do we need to communicate? ⠀ And you, do you think about what can you do about this? how can you be a volunteer in this situation? and what can you learn from it? . . #virtualvolunteering #onlinevolunteering #buenosaires #argentina2020 #buildcommunity #communitybuilding #communitydevelopment #socialchange #socialchangemakers #communityleaders #leadership #leadershipdevelopment
