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.
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.

A new June 3 in pandemic, without taking to the streets, but expressing our voices. We demand a feminist judicial reform, a stop to impunity. No more femicides and trans-travesticides.
In a context where the debate about face-to-face or virtual classes does not cease and where the situation is being exploited with interests, we believe it is important to reflect on another possible education: not to open or not to open, but how.
