The presence of volunteers and their active participation in the development actions implemented by the Center for Innovation and Sustainability with its local partners fully contribute to the fight against poverty through initiatives that promote the sustainable development of their communities.
The objective is for volunteers to contribute new points of view and capacities that contribute to the progress of the communities. Also, with this program, it is intended that the volunteers become activists who help to spread the importance of sustainable development and care for the environment, based on the knowledge and experience acquired during the development of local projects.
