Correct answer is: All of the above
In many Latin American and Caribbean countries there is a growing interest in voluntary service. FAVACA is being approached by a wide range of private and government agencies to help them develop voluntary service programs and initiatives. Government alone has not been able to solve the many pressing problems associated with poverty, nor has the market performed the way that many had hoped and imagined. So what is left? Many are now turning to voluntary service in the hope that they will be able to make the difference that so many need and want.
Armed conflict & illegality are inextricably linked to weak capacity. Supporting activities of grassroots organizations creates peace and security, promotes human rights, and creates positive impact on conflict-affected populations. FAVACA volunteers help organizations in Colombia gain knowledge in advocacy & project management. FAVACA supports civil society organizations to create change in communities, promote mutual understanding and create lasting partnerships. Help us out? http://www.favaca.org/?q=node%2F30
"Being a volunteer, serving selflessly, is a position of power. It moves you from being a victim to being an agent of change. It makes you unshakable. Because your actions are driven by inspiration, not external motivation, you do not wait for someone to guide you or reward you. The moment you stop waiting, stop complaining, stop blaming, and start taking responsibility for the life and people around you, you begin to grow. And the seed for innovation and creative problem-solving is planted in local leaders." -Steve Vetter
