We at Voluntario Global 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.
In addition to wanting to help the projects in the organization, many VG volunteers seek to know “the real Argentina”
Tributes to the figure of Marthin Luther King are multiplied today, but these tributes show only a small part his thought.
Argentina has become the fifth country I’ve ever spent Christmas in. The second country I’ve spent it away from my immediate family.
I was invited to take part in one of the demonstrations that have been taking place in Buenos Aires – with an aim to impact the government's decision on pension cuts, tax changes, distortion of employee and other important changes that the government wants to save money on.
