Volunteering and shaping the future

GiovannaWelcome to Giovanna who hopes to follow in the footsteps of fellow Brazilian Gabriel and  become a volunteer working with the young peoples’ community project in the North East of the UK.

The project is run by the order of the Assumption Sisters, who also run the Living and Learning Project for young people in Rio, where VinB places a number of volunteers each year.

Giovanna, who just recently completed her studies to become a vet, lives in the North East of Brazil in a town called Cristino with her mother and is  following in her footsteps as well, because for a number of years her mother, Tottinha, has supported VinB volunteers in their work with the  farming community as well as hosting visiting groups on the VinB led pilgrimages.

VinB is proud of  the part it plays in enabling volunteers from both countries to shape a future founded on mutual understanding and appreciation.
