Who we are

What do you learn as a volunteer in the Soup Kitchen Project?⠀ When helping at the Soup Kitchen, you learn to appreciate the value of the small things, how to truly connect with people and the power that these relationships can have on your life and the lives of others, on the communities and the future. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what language you speak, what kind of house you live in or what kind of job you have. In the end, we are all human and we get so mixed up in focussing on other unimportant aspects that we forget that deep down we’re all the same. You will realise that even the smallest thing you do, can make someone else's day.⠀ ⠀ Apply for this project: http://bit.ly/2SVOV5U⠀ ⠀ #CommunityVolunteer #VolunteerAbroad #HelpArgentina #SoupKitchen #Volunteering #ServiceLearning #SoftSkills #CommunityBuilding

LAST CROP OF THE SEASON On Saturday, we, the members of @comunidadpacheco, reunited to close the workshop that began last spring. While we shared a snack, we introduced the new coordinators who will accompany us in our projects throughout this year. In addition, we continued with the debate and reflection on why we consider an agro-ecological perspective in our gardens and in our national productive model to be of the utmost importance. We ended the day with the last harvest of the season, which we distributed among everyone present, based on the knowledge of community work and the land. #communityworkshop #agroecologicalfarming #foodsovereignty #righttofood #healthydiet #communitygarden #workingtogether #produceyourownfood #eatyourgeens #choosewhatyoueat #sustainableagriculture #sustainableliving #sustainablepractices #organicfarming #communitybuilding?#volunteercommunity #communityservice #buildcommunity

Let’s talk about soft skills: #Assertiveness??? By Milena Sapey⠀ ⠀ While hard skills are mostly related to formal education and training, soft skills tend to develop with experience. Soft skills are deeply linked to your personality, the way you communicate and bond with others.⠀ ⠀ So, what does it mean to be Assertive?⠀ ⠀ According to the Cambridge Dictionary, someone assertive behaves confidently and is not frightened to say what they want or believe. But assertiveness also involves respecting others' opinions and toughts.⠀ ⠀ Someone assertive distances himself from a passive position without having aggressive behavior. Assertiveness is to find the balance to stand up for yourself and your belief, without slip past other people's feelings and ideas. Therefore, to become more assertive is important to:⠀ ⠀ -Be open-minded⠀ -Be an active listener⠀ -Be confident about yourself⠀ -Learn how to express your emotions⠀ -Be able to admit mistakes and to recognize others⠀ -Acknowledge differences and learn to respect them⠀ ⠀ What better way to do it than leaving your comfort zone?⠀ https://buff.ly/3bRCCPo
