Our volunteers

Its a very enriching experience, I leave with a great feeling of having collaborated and contributed a great deal. The entity I have been assigned to is a fantastic project and I think I will continue to work with them outside the programme. Im already looking forward to doing it again.”

What made a big impression on me was bringing them that independent vision, that value of what you do in the business world, bringing it to a social institution and helping them to bring their project to maturity.
