Since 2007 I’ve been taking part in a NGO called Servas International in Brazil. I joined the organization firstly as a member and afterwards as staff member for management matters. My job nowadays is interview potential members but from 2009 to 2011 I was the regional coordinator for São Paulo state.
The first time I learned about Servas was reading a magazine about traveling around the world without spending much money and even more making friends. Nevertheless it aimed build friendship based on peace principles by understanding different cultures. I contact key people and joined the group in Brazil.
Servas allowed me know interesting hosters and travellers worldwide. They have different visions and perceptions enhanced my life. That’s the importance of volunteerism: you give and receive.
