If Walls Could Talk

December 22 marks the day we say goodbye to the Volunteer House on Avenida de Mayo and start a new chapter in Pacheco.

The new Voluntario Global project in Pacheco looks forward to the first volunteers of 2017. Surely, new stories will come to life in Pacheco, like those lived in "the House" of Avenida de Mayo.

If walls could talk, they will surely tell us about the thousand stories they have seen happen; about the thousand volunteers from every corner of the world; about the many different languages they listened to. The tears and laughter, kisses and hugs, welcomes and goodbyes ... countless moments that will remain in the echo of these walls forever.

As a farewell, we want to share some of the messages that were left on the walls of our "beloved house". Surely we will miss it, but also, the new space in Pacheco will be filled with life and new stories.
