BENEFITING: VE GLOBAL
Having arrived to Santiago earlier this year as an exchange student I was immediately confronted with issues of social marginalization and inequality. A cycle that’s interminable for those born into it without help. Children challenged and faced everyday with violation of basic rights, neglect, abandon or abuse.
VE Global aims at reducing this risk and problem by providing the chance for underprivileged children to overcome these inequitable circumstances. VE Global has built a community for the children; providing them with positive role models and advocators to foster, support and pursue a life of hope, confidence and equality.
VE Global has trained more than 450 volunteers from 35 countries in the last decade and worked with over 2,500 children at social risk in different residential homes around Santiago de Chile. The impact of VE Global’s work has provided children with a brighter, more hopeful future.
My name is Jamie and I’m a programs intern for VE Global. After arriving in Santiago, I immediately wanted to help address the problem of social inequality and human rights violation in Chile. Pursuing my degree in International Studies, and passion for social justice I joined the VE Global team to help with the development and equality opportunity for children at social risk.
In order for VE Global to continue its incredible programs, to grow as a community and to pursue its positive social impact on the children’s lives, I ask for your contribution this Christmas. Every bit counts, and your donations will help change the lives of the children here in Santiago. Their future is our opportunity.
