BENEFITING: VE GLOBAL
I'm Caroline and I'm just your average gringa living in Santiago, Chile. I came to Santiago to teach English over a year ago after a backpacking trip through South America. After about 8 months of teaching full-time, I found that I was moving away from work that I was truly passionate about; working with children. After looking for an organization in the area, I saw a classmate from university was volunteering in Santiago and that's when I found out about VE.
VE Global is a wonderful non-profit organization located in Santiago, Chile that trains and prepares volunteers to work with children and youth at social risk within the metropolitan area. VE volunteers work directly with the children and youth to provide educational and creative activities to help foster confidence and social/emotional development. Every plan and effort made by VE is aimed at giving the children and youth living at different residential homes throughout Santiago as many positive opportunities as possible.
I currently work as a programs intern with VE, helping to organize and run the various longterm events and programs that VE Global does with the children. With your help, the money I raise will go to support the amazing work and dedication of the volunteers, interns and staff at VE Global to support these youth.
