Things to know about our Volunteer Abroad Program in Argentina
Argentina is a country characterized not only by a good public education system but also by a comparatively strong and socially committed community. Therefore it is not surprising that extreme recessions and equally extreme social cuts have led to the foundation of numerous large and small NGOs throughout the country. The social commitment of the Argentine community is enormous. Nowadays, the projects, experience and voluntary work of Argentine NGOs are replacing large parts of the weakened social system. With heart and soul, they fight for their community and population groups at risk of poverty which includes, for instance, children and adolescents, single parents, retirees, disabled, unemployed, or homeless people, etc.
Besides financial donations, the NGOs especially rely on local or volunteers from abroad who energetically support their community projects. If you want to help one of those organizations to reach their objectives and contribute to their success, we are happy to find the perfect volunteer project in Argentina for you.
For each placement, we make sure to carefully check whether the volunteer’s expectations match the requirements of the Argentinean organization. Your activities are then derived directly from the needs of your volunteer institution in the given project and time period.
We do not provide projects lasting 1-2 weeks only because we believe that a successful cooperation with a NGO abroad requires a certain amount of time to get to know the organization and its procedures.
We only mediate one volunteer per NGO, there never are several NICE volunteers working in the same institution simultaneously.
None of our institutions receive financial incentives for the integration of foreign volunteers and their work.
All projects are designed to enhance sustainability, conservation and self-help support for the community.
