Activity A: Workshops on Education for Development.

The choice of line of work will be subject to the interests, abilities and training of the volunteer.
The volunteers will be “job shadowing” at first, gaining protagonism as time goes by, deciding which role they want to take.
Once the period is over, the volunteers will be encouraged to write an article for our webpage sharing their personal experience and learnings in their line of work.
