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.
Somewhat by chance, I learned about La Bomba de Tiempo (hereafter referred to as “LBdT”) online, but the scant mention in an article piqued my interest. I already loved going to live music so naturally, I investigated the show.
Today is Jessica's last day volunteering at the kindergarten.
When I first signed up with Voluntario Global in May, I thought I Voluntario Global was a small organization that helps one or two schools. After getting there, I learned that Voluntario Global is a small organization that helps over 15 communities around Buenos Aires.
