From our experience, it is transformative both for the host community and for the volunteer who joins, immerses themselves in the work, and engages in daily exchanges. For this process to be genuine and transformative, time is needed, but it is also necessary to include the volunteer in all the activities carried out by the organisation. Whether it is to help with specific tasks or simply to listen and "translate," understanding the uniqueness of the local culture.

We are sharing an article written by the "ECuNHi" team, a cultural space created by the Mothers and Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo and dedicated to their dissapeared sons and daughters.
