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.

Today, Argentina commemorates the day of national sovereignty. On November 20, 1845, the battle of the Vuelta de Obligado against Anglo-French forces took place. This event was an example of the defense of land, water, and sovereign rights, thus, in 1974 was declared by law as the Day of National Sovereignty. ⠀ In this sense, we emphasize an idea of sovereignty that implies all our rights, which is why we share a phrase of the historian Viviana Mallol, director of the National Historical Museum:⠀ "Although Argentine history is marked by events that allowed us to achieve sovereignty as a Nation and as a State, La Vuelta de Obligado has taken on the character of an icon of the defense of Argentina's sovereignty. We can apply this concept of sovereignty in several fields, to talk about sovereignty over bodies or food sovereignty, understood as the ability of each people to define their own agricultural and food policies according to sustainable development and food security objectives".

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?⠀ ⠀ I am originally from Kenya, but I currently live in the US. I’m also a student attending the University of Minnesota, studying Philosophy and Spanish. Coming from a multilingual family (I speak four languages), I have always loved learning new languages and cultures. I even learned German for two years but unfortunately, I couldn’t continue with it (I’m hoping I can pick it up again in the future). As I started learning Spanish, I fell in love with the languages and wanted to learn more about the culture. My passion and interest in language is the reason why I decided to intern online at Springfield.⠀ ⠀ What do you like the most about teaching?⠀ ⠀ Although I learn Spanish in school, a lot of it is mostly academic stuff. I like that I get to interact with native Spanish speakers and learn about the use of language colloquially. I know that the Spanish in Argentina is quite different from that spoken in other countries, so I love that I get to hear the dialect. It is safe to say that I have learned a lot of Argentinian slang from my students. When it comes to teaching, I find it interesting how the teaching styles in Argentina and the US are different. Working with all the amazing teachers has given me the opportunity to learn about the educational system in Argentina and also experience not only the work culture but also the different communication styles.⠀ ⠀ How do you feel about online volunteering?⠀ ⠀ I like the flexibility and convenience that online volunteering offers. I can work around my schedule and be able to take up as many courses as I can since I don’t have to commute to the institute. If I have an English class after my university classes, I’ll simply log on to zoom and join. I particularly love that I am able to work in another country from the US. I don’t think this would have been possible before, but with a lot of students learning from home, I got to have this opportunity. However, it is frustrating at times when there are technological issues and you can’t effectively communicate with others, both teachers or students.⠀ ⠀ Read more on our website: https://bit.ly/2INbw2f
