International Volunteer Day

Most international volunteer programs come from Europe and the United States.

There are many international volunteer organizations. From universities in the United States that come to Europe in joint programs of studies, volunteering and tourism, to projects of the United Nations.

Patricia Calvo has been repeating the experience in Tanzania for five years.

The support of voluntary native people of the NGO 'Voluntariado África' allowed Calvo to establish links with the people and appreciate the cultural impact of a territory different from the western mindset.


The International Volunteer Day is a good opportunity to give a voice to people who have committed to social projects to improve an environment where society does not manage to do so.
