The Foundation cares about the well-being of its volunteers. This is why it selects stimulating tasks based on volunteers’ interests, passions and needs and thus contribute to personal and professional growth. The Foundation guides its volunteers, whether they are spreading word about the cause, organizing and holding events or doing administrative work, to makes sure each is trained and fully included in the team.
