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.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Open-Mindedness

Let’s talk about soft skills: Open-Mindedness

Open-mindedness involves the ability to be open to new ideas, experiences, theories, people, and ways of living. It is also about adopting a fair and respectful attitude towards opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from one's own. One of the main factors in this skill is tolerance: being well disposed implies accepting others without judging, negatively criticizing or being unpleasant. 

THE KEY ROLE OF RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

THE KEY ROLE OF RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

This pandemic has shown us the strong negative impact that human actions have on the planet without a sustainable perspective. We are acquiring new habits, restructuring our way of life to take care of each other, but are we really thinking about the future and the environment?

The idea of volunteering is usually associated with helping. And although it is not a mistaken perception, we believe that it makes invisible and leaves aside many processes that occur while volunteering. ⠀ We see volunteering as a non-formal learning process. Why? Because it is an experience that generates a lot of knowledge that cannot be found in books but has to be lived. By being a volunteer we learn about ourselves and about others, it's about getting involved, that's why we think it's important to emphasize that it's a two-way relationship. ⠀ Volunteering is about creating bonds, learning, helping, exchanging, and growing. For all these reasons we believe that volunteering builds community and leads to a better place as a society 🌱🌍⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #volunteering #volunteerabroad #communitybuilder #skillsdevelopment

THE VOICE OF OUR PEERS: CHAPTER TWELVE⠀ LUZ' REFLECTIONS⠀ That the COVID-19 has generated a state of permanent fear is not a revealing truth. But fear of the symptoms or their spread is not the only thing we face in today's sense of a semi-paralyzed world.⠀ Fear is generated by television, which repeats figures all the time (of infected people, of dead people, of the fall of the market) and how they increase as the days go by, as well as announcing the high possibilities of the collapse of the health system.⠀ Fear is generated by the police day and night in our neighborhoods, causing us to feel a sense of permanent vigilance.⠀ Fear that the money will not be enough for these days of obligatory social isolation, with prices that go up and jobs that are lost.⠀ Fear sometimes paralyzes, but I understand that it is this same fear that drives us to build collective responses.⠀ This is the moment when we must all generate spaces, even if they are virtual, that invite us to a permanent reflection on why we are in this situation and how we can reverse it. It is clear that we are living the consequences of a capitalist system that enriches very few at the cost of the suffering of many.⠀ Situations that frighten us live every day, gender violence, poverty, hunger, the destruction of the environment (which is our common home), the unemployed stand out from a list that could be even more extensive, but in the face of these situations our position must always be the same: to fight for the construction of a better world.⠀ Isolation must not turn us into individualistic beings, now more than ever our commitment must be to our peoples. As Pope Francis says, NO ONE IS SAVED ALONE.⠀ https://bit.ly/3hCxG30

Let's talk about soft skills: Initiative⠀ The initiative involves the ability to proactively propose ideas or solutions and act consequently. This soft skill is highly appreciated in the professional environment, but it is also very helpful for personal growth. ⠀ One of the most important advice we give in the introductory meetings is to take the initiative. Why is it so important? When volunteering you will be getting immersed in a whole new world where everyone will be very welcoming, but that doesn't mean they can be telling you what to do all the time. ⠀ No one should be afraid to take the initiative, as long as it is done with respect. Proposing ideas or solutions is always appreciated. Projects usually make decisions together as part of the dynamic, it's how we work. In that context, when giving proposals it is important to reflect on the possibilities and resources. However, it is always better to give the initiative than to remain silent out of fear. Taking the initiative can also open new possibilities, it is to show others that something matters to you and to demonstrate your energy to do so. ⠀ Keep in mind that taking the initiative is complicated until you become more familiar with the placement, the people, and the routines. Remember to take your time. Taking initiative can be developed and volunteering as a challenging experience, it's the perfect context to do so. ⠀ https://bit.ly/30G2R6v
