We recognize that genuine exchange generates greater understanding between peoples and we promote the creation of social ties through the maintenance of a network of local and international organizations.
Through these networks and our joint actions, we seek to promote education based on community and democratic values in order to generate critical thinking and achieve political participation that can transform social reality. We speak of social, economic and ecological transformations with sustainable development, equity and justice by identifying and denouncing a system that reproduces poverty, violence and marginalization.
Valeria and Armin founded Voluntario Global in 2006 when they saw a window of opportunity for a mediating institution that would allow for a mutual exchange between the local communities of Buenos Aires and foreigners eager for a deeper insight into them. Initially we assisted in just one school support project, yet gradually other organizations contacted us and were added to our Network. Today we work with 16 different projects in Buenos Aires, and have founded two Cooperatives of our own: Su Lavanderia (2008) and Pacheco Community Center (2014).
