“Armin´s Dream fundraising” is a campaign made to honor the memory of Armin, co-founder of Voluntario Global, who was killed the past 4th of March. He was convinced that the opportunity to travel and learn from other experiences and exchange was an essential way of training, motivation and creation of bonds among those seeking a more equal and fairer world. This is an essencial idea of VG until today. Armin died at the age of only 29 with a big dream remaining unfulfilled: he had always wanted to travel and experience cultural exchange himself.

Therefore, this fundraising campaign is looking to enable young people from the shantytowns in Argentina to volunteer abroad. It´s the desire of the people who knew him that others have the chance to travel, see the world and have an opportunity to broaden their minds.

Today Armin´s Dream campaign has collected $7524, giving five youngsters the opportunity to see the world, thanks the many ex volunteers that have donated for the cause. Participants will be thoroughly selected by our board of former volunteers and members of the community in Argentina.

 

In order to encourage participation, Voluntario Global team decided to call to action by giving those who presents their forms before the 30th of December the chance to be one of the first two selected travelers. Thanks to this move, young people from various areas and with different interests have reached Voluntario Global with questions, suggestions and wishs in order to complete their forms.

For example Ximena and Nicolas, whom had been student in an English school and now they have become teachers, decided to experience the language they had been practicing for so long in a native country. But this kids won´t be just traveling as tourists because they want to experience culture through an exchange in a rural high school.  “We had been doing so much learning and teaching over the past years that this opportunity motivate us to mix our knowledge with the knowledge from another culture”

 

Samantha is another participant in Armin´s Dream campaign. She presented two optional destinations in witch learn more about environmental care and conservation. Samantha is an assistant at a kindergarten and is studying tourism. This way she will be able to learn how sustainable development can be combining with tourism experience. “I would like to work as a volunteer in a local organization abroad where I can learn how to assist in the care of the environment and then in the future use it in my dairy community activities ”
