Gender Equality Project
Are you passionate about gender rights and equality. Want to help girls and women in their fight for independence and better health?

The centre focuses on women's rights, women's education and empowerment, assistance with prevention of domestic violence, and women's health. Volunteers in this program can get involved with workshops, such as sewing or dressmaking, as well as caring and accompanying female victims of abuse and domestic violence. Other tasks include teaching basic English, making diapers, helping in the kitchen and maintaining the library of the centre.

Are you a rugby, soccer or hockey fan? Do you understand the confidence that can be gained from sports participation? In the Sports Program, volunteers work with children in impoverished neighborhoods in the outskirts of Cordoba city. Sports such as soccer, rugby and hockey are played in different seasons and on different days of the week. The group spirit of these team sports is helping the children to change some of their already ingrained habits and it teaches them to fight for what they want from life. Further, the health of the kids improves through the training and some receive education about nutrition and healthy eating. Volunteers can help by playing with and teaching the kids about sport, improving the field, fundraising for the club, helping in the kitchen with healthy food preparation, teaching some basic English and translating promotional texts.
