Our Commitment To Youth Empowerment And Cooperative Culture

Our Mision

Our Mision

The Pacheco Community Center will help young people from the surrounding area learn the craft of gardening and landscaping —framed in agroecology understood as a science, a social movement and a practice—. With this, our main goal is to empower them with the skills to be able to have a job, gain confidence and grow surrounded by a communitarian way of leaving.
Our Vision

Our Vision

At the Pacheco Community Center we work toward local development and try to reach sustainability in its three dimensions: environmental, social and economic. We believe that by creating more community experiences, we empower people, youth especially, so they can build their own future and have a better life.



The Laundry Project

Written by
On November 1, 2018, the first working cooperative founded by Voluntario Global will turn 10 years old. This cooperative has been generating employment since it started and has given work culture and the possibility of continuing to study to young people from vulnerable areas of the city of Buenos Aires.

A Different Space in Buenos Aires

The idea of the Pacheco Community Center was born in 2014 as a synthesis and continuity of a practical and theoretical experience built by the Global Volunteer Organization for over 10 years. It stemmed from the desire to create a path to sustainable social practices in a community space that allows us resume the relationship with the land and natural space.
Sustainable practices create awareness and understanding of the social, economic and environmental problems and this space allows us to test alternative ways of consumption, the cultural exchange in human relationships and find solutions to decrease the depletion of natural resources.
The Pacheco Community Center is a multi-functional space that promotes community development in groups so that the individual can strive towards greater selfconfidence, critical awareness and social responsibility.


Who We Are

Written by

Voluntario Global helps organizations from local communities and neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires to improve the work that they are already doing and work towards strengthening local development together. This help may be in the form of different tools, such as volunteers or donations, or helping them to obtain new funding, grants and training.


Voluntario Global is a non-government organization (NGO) that works within poor communities.

We receive no financial assistance from the government; our funds come directly from generous donations. Our resources are distributed according to local needs under the strict supervision of our local coordinators.

With this in mind, the donations we request from participants in our programs are fair and accessible to all. The small income generated from participants in our programs allows us to maintain our presence and continue our work.

In addition, a volunteer's contribution towards their own program goes to funding the whole volunteer program: from administration costs, volunteer recruitment, the development and running of volunteer programs, orientation, training and funding the project itself.

All donations are tax deductible (paying through the Omprakash Foundation).

Where does your money go?

We maintain complete transparency in our finances and encourage all volunteers to view how our income is used and to participate in the budgetary decision-making process.

After the bank and taxes discounts your donation has (around 15%), we receive an amount in peso argentino which is used as shown in this graphic. Once you arrive in Argentina, you can ask your coordinator about this if you have any questions.

Social Savings Fund

Thanks to a generous donation from one of our volunteers, Oliver Morley, we have been able to begin operating a Social Savings Fund. 

Since then, we have been able to finance computers, books, and many necessary supplies to go on and grow. In addition, we have also financed a home construction loan for a family that lives in Villa Soldati.
and part of the Laundry Project. Lately, we have opened a meeting place, named "Volunteer Club & house" where volunteers can interchange in order to improve their helping in projects and it is a place for studying, taking classes and meeting for young people from poor areas.

Why is it important to take Spanish classes?

Many reasons:

  • When you decide to make volunteer work in other country, you are thinking to help people and also looking for a real cultural and knowledge exchange. Each one has something to give to others. You will better understand all the meanings, if you talk yourself. The translation by others put you away from your own experience. You do not need a perfect Spanish but you need some words and expressions to feel immerse and completely enjoy the experience!
  • When you learn a new language, you learn the cultural expressions. This is almost as important as the words so you can start living the culture of another country.
  • If you speak Spanish you will be able to talk with almost 500 million people worldwide. It means, you can improve your work possibilities and have more opportunity to choose where you want to work. You will be able to reach all the information and all the people without intermediaries.
  • Spanish is the second language for international communication. Increasingly, latin culture has influence around the world through art, architecture, literature, society and politics.
  • Study abroad is the most effective and easy way to learn Spanish. The goal is a combination of Spanish classes (grammar and conversation) and living and sharing with the local people.

Where do we recommend to learn Spanish?

As and NGO, we promote responsibility and quality. We choose a school that offers:

  • Quality and experience in teaching Spanish.
  • Native teachers with permanent training.
  • Great variety of courses all the year.
  • The school belongs to Tandem Schools

Voluntario Global helps local communities by being available to discuss anything that local organizations need, and offering ideas for further change and development.
