7 good reasons to volunteer

When you do a volunteering, you can see for yourself the result of the work in which you have participated. Although your contribution is small, it grows and multiplies.

The contribution of the volunteer is important for all vulnerable communities, mainly in Central American countries where we work. The more we are motivated to make this type of solidarity trips, the more we will see the results of our work.

Here are the 7 reasons that we consider to be important why volunteering is a unique and indelible experience.

Completing international volunteering will be an added value to your work and personal experience. It is enriching to pass on what you know to other people. It is a way to show your social commitment and your solidarity with other people.
