We at Voluntario Global define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.
Our mission is to empower and connect local organizations to promote improvement for the whole community and take a unified approach to community development. We also aim to create a network between volunteers and local organizations in order to foster an exchange of culture and ideas which can help both to grow in different ways.
The organizations and communities where we work are the main pillars of Voluntario Global. Together with local organizations, we determine our objectives and the type of volunteer we need. Put simply, Voluntario Global could not exist without the organizations, as we work together for their development and growth.
As most people, I really wish I could just place a foreign language dictionary under my pillow before the night and wake up with a head full of new language skills...
A volunteer is defined in the Oxford dictionary as follows:"a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task" or "a person who works for an organization without being paid".
