The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local Cordoba community where you will serve in Argentina. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organization in Cordoba to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
At the Gender Equality project volunteers work at a centre for single mothers who come from abusive homes or have been abandoned. The centre focuses on women's rights, women's education and empowerment, assistance with prevention of domestic violence, and women's health. Volunteers at this project can get involved with workshops, such as sewing or dressmaking, as well as caring and accompanying female victims of abuse and domestic violence. Other tasks include teaching basic English, making diapers, helping in the kitchen and maintaining the library of the centre.
