Mrs. Valeria Gracia
Areas of Expertise
Community Development, Education and Research, Green Operations, Organization Management
I have worked with social organizations for more than sixteen years.
With a degree in art and licensed in tourism, I was managing a hostel and at the same time I began volunteering in a shantytown where I taught art workshops to children.
After almost five years of volunteering, I began to ponder a new project that would allow her to have a deeper impact in the poorer neighborhoods. My vision was to start an organization that promoted continued education and training in order to create greater equality.
Today, I am dedicated to the relationship with each institution under Voluntario Global and I help create job, and national and international collaboration networks.
I think that the goal is to empower people to be creative looking for new ways to exchange, preserve culture and traditions, live, takes care environment and develop a new fair trade economy for the entire world.
I am sure “Other World is possible.” One with social justice and equally for everyone. We just need to build it together.
