The Volunteer Program is an opportunity to open a possible way in the society of walls, of separations and of exclusions, so that persons who are on both sides can relate with one another and express in a tangible way that these paths are possible.

Why be a Volunteer?

  • Because I feel the impulse to go out of myself and to go “beyond”.
  • Because I want to give “freely” what I have received freely.
  • Because I believe that this is justice.
  • Because I feel a call to go out to the reality.
  • Because I want to commit myself with this world and with “my brothers and sisters”.
  • Because my life will have more meaning.
  • Because I want to go where the heart leads me to…
