Volunteer Meeting With GAiN

This past April in Terrassa the first volunteers meeting with Global Aid Network (GAiN) was held. More than 60 people attended the meeting....volunteers and staff of the projects that are being developed such as the recovery house for homeless men which has 20 volunteers and the project with immigrant women in Terrassa in which 10 volunteers are serving, as well as 5 additional staff that are involved in the reconstruction of a children´s home in Haiti.

It was an open time where those involved were able to share with all about their experiences as volunteers with GAiN. The program was focused on helping to make known the various projects that are being developed by the volunteers. They were the protagonists of the evening. Several volunteers were interviewed in front of the group to discover their personal motivations for involvement with the needy and why they have chosen to partner with GAiN in their service.

At the same meeting were additional GAiN staff from other countries who were able to enrich the vision of GAiN by sharing their own experiences.

This month an application period will begin for homeless men to be able to live at the recovery house in Barcelona. So, along with this new stage, a new round of recruitment for additional volunteers to accompany them will also start.
