International meeting on our Volunteers Day

This March 9, coinciding with the anniversary of the Itaka-Escolapios Foundation and our Volunteer Day, we have held a very special virtual meeting: we have met responsible and representative people of volunteering in different countries of the Itaka-Escolapios network. People have been connected from Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Spain, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, DR Congo… including the General Volunteer Team, as well as the Executive Commission of the network. During the two-hour meeting, the situation of volunteering in each place was shared, along with needs and proposals for the network, as well as some lines of joint progress. Among these, the new Framework Document of Volunteering in the Itaka-Escolapios network stands out, in the process of being prepared and which already has a draft. It has been a very emotional meeting, as well as useful to share how we are living and how to better promote our volunteering, which, as we have remembered in the meeting, is the heart of Itaka-Escolapios.
