We are a group of people inspired by the values of hope, compassion, dignity, solidarity and subsidiarity as provided by the Gospel and the Catholic Social Teaching. What guides us is the conviction that every young person should be able to live his/her life to the full. This in turn provides us with a solid value base towards the development of both our projects throughout the world, and the strengthening our relationships with our collaborators on the field.About

Volunteering is an important way to help people and communities in need.
One of the most common reasons people reject the idea of volunteering is the fact that, leading already busy lives, we find it hard to commit time to some extra duties.
But, taken into account all the benefits of volunteering, maybe you shall think twice before rejecting the idea.
This is why.
While helping others in need, you will make new friends, get to know other cultures and customs, develop new skills and most importantly, volunteering will make you and those around you happier.
If you were one of those kids who were happier to share treats with others rather than taking all for themselves, then we shall convince you no more, because you're a born volunteer!
1. Lonely no more!
A research done by campaigntoendloneliness.org shows that 43% of 17-25 year olds have experienced problems with loneliness. The simplest way to reverse this? Volunteer!
2. Improve self-esteem.
When people volunteer, they develop self-esteem, confidence and feelings of self worth. Nowdays, there are numerous boys and girls who struggle with self-esteem issues, social anxiety and depression. Considering all the benefits, volunteering could be both life-changing and life-saving for them!
3.Volunteering and longevity.
Did you know that long-term volunteers have longer lives, less diseases and better overall health? A study done by Corporation for National and Community Service, has shown that people who volunteer over 100 hours a year are some of the healthiest people in the world!
4. Helps you burn that belly fat. Let's make it straight, you spend too much time being physicaly inactive! Walking around a shelter, playing with kids or visiting elderly patients at a neighborhood nursing home all require that you do more than sitting at a desk or on a couch.
5.Volunteering saves lives.
When you invest time and energy in volunteering, you are investing in yourself just as much as in the causes you support. When volunteering, you are improving other people's lives as much as yours.
Facts aside, one more thing, which is basically the best part, is that volunteering is just plain fun!
