Join the adventure
The unique help abroad program – enjoy abroad, learn new thing and get involved in a big spectrum of projects and communitarian activities
Vivientes is a local self-founded project created to help communities assisting daily necessities. This is not a big NGO or Gov program. Meaning that we don’t have to deal with bureaucracy or another kind of obstacles to actually achieve goals and results in our communitarian actions. read below to see more about our work. But remember to be open to learn from the locals & Vivientes so you can also share and help with the local developments.
One week with us is, in fact, unique… a month unforgivable. Not just as a tourist or volunteer, is about sharing and experience deeply the life here and the impact you can make on other people’s life.

So… this is Volunteer-tourism? The answer is NO, because everyone that comes here has a mission to the community. You should use your capacities to see how can you improve the communities and get a “Share + Learn” experience on the process (of course with Vivientes Staff guidance)
Meaning that each Volunteer/Intern Experience is unique because each person has different potentials.
