Main aim of the charity

Providing education and training for unemployed to get a job or develop a business plan to start as entrepreneur. By this means people are able to feel useful valuable and worth and have a worthy living. They can even employ other people too, make formal contributions in the country, be an example in their communities and families, avoid ending up in illegal businesses, etc.

How the employee got involved and why

I got involved 10 years ago when Argentina had a profund economic crisis and many people unemployed didnt have the skills or support to find a worth job, this unfortunatelly continues to be the country situation with 3 out of 10 people in poverty and 20% of young people unemployed. I believe to change a country you need productivity and work, especially to be sustainable in the future. And people give more of themselves if you trust and enable them to do so, so I believe in sharing knowledge, skills and opportunities and these are the values that I found in PROEM organization.

What work does the employee do for charity?

This program focuses mainly in 2 beneficiaries: people that will start a new business (can be selling cakes, making clothes, offering services such as carpenter or masseuse, etc) or people appliying for a job. As a volunteer I facilitate trainings on different topics such as how to apply for a job, competencies development, personal branding, coaching, emotional ingeligence, business plans, sales, etc.
