Sustainable cities and communities

A key element of our projects is to utilise volunteers who live within the city or community which the project is based in. Therefore, the carbon footprint is minimized, and the community’s culture, language and identity can be maintained by volunteers that have a strong understanding of the needs and sensitivities of the community. For example, our volunteers in Rio De Janeiro are from the local community, meaning they speak the local language and understand the history and deeply-rooted social challenges that the children face. This empowers the people of the community to enact change in their own lives and within their own communities that is not dependent on external volunteers.
