A TOTAL of 20 volunteering initiatives in European Union countries were promoted by Almeria’s Department for Economic Promotion and Employment in 2012.
According to Economic Promotion and Employment Leader Amos Garcia, the number of volunteers sent out last year is twice the number sent between 2008 and 2011 and as many as those sent in the last 10 years.
He stressed the importance of the experience for the volunteers: “not only is it an enriching experience for them that inflates their curriculums but it also opens new doors for them in regards with embarking on self-employment projects in Spain or finding work abroad.
Most of the projects carried out by the volunteers are of a social and cultural nature but also on international relations and cooperation for development, and they took place in Bulgaria, Turkey, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Poland, Greece and Italy. In previous years, there were projects in Germany or United Kingdom too.
