10 Years of Voluntario Global
The mission of Voluntario Global is to help organizations from local communities and neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires to improve the work that they are already doing and work towards strengthening local development together. This help may be in the form of different tools, such as volunteers or donations, or helping them to obtain new funding, grants and training. Voluntario Global also aims to create a network between volunteers and local organizations, promoting the creation of relationships and creating an exchange of culture and ideas which will help both to grow in different ways.
We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder supports a community and the individuals who are part of it, discovering what is strong about them and helping to work towards improvement, development and growth. We define ourselves as community builders because we work alongside local organizations as they develop and grow, putting emphasis on the fact that no person is more nor less important than another and that we are all equals working together. Volunteers, coordinators and organizations connect and unite to achieve a common goal in local development.
