Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Our Partner

This NGO was established in the early 80’s to address a vast array of social issues such as, social marginalisation, especially with regards to drug abuse and homeless assistance. Over the years, the Center has become a reference point in the neighbourhood, one of the areas of Naples with the highest poverty and crime rates.
In 2005, activities were started to tackle street poverty through the reception of homeless Italians and immigrants. The service starts with information, listening and orientation activities at the Help Centre inside the Naples Central Station. After a few months, the night shelter was opened.

Your work

Volunteers will preferably support workers during the morning in preparing meals and running the day service. The volunteer will help prepare ingredients, e.g. by chopping vegetables, bread, preparing dishes and helping to prepare meals.
You will also have the opportunity to learn some recipes, such as the famous pasta carbonara or meatballs according to the Neapolitan tradition and you will discover that meatballs and chicken are not used as a condiment for pasta in Italy :).
In addition to preparing about 20 meals for the sick homeless who are in the 24-hour service, volunteers will also slice and prepare donated food that needs to be frozen.
In the mornings, you'll support one social worker helping him in the kitchen and sometimes with small tasks related to the running of the facility. When they received donations such as pizzas and sandwiches from bakeries, you'll help him in distributing food to the homeless in the yard of the Center.
The kitchen is also active for the preparation of dinner, for which, on average, about 120 meals are prepared for several homeless people who come to spend the night at the shelter. For dinner, the association can count on many Neapolitan volunteers. In this case, volunteers can join in some evenings, based on the organisation's needs, and again, help prepare the ingredients, serve the meals and clean the kitchen or the tables.

Die Freiwilligen-Organisation stellt sich vor

We are a worker-run service cooperative founded in March 2015. Our primary objective is to integrate the local network of NGOs, social enterprises and schools with an international network of volunteers. Our vision is to promote international volunteerism and social internships by strategically matching international volunteers with local NGOs and local talents. Our goal is to be a support to the community thanks to volunteers and interns. Their help, ideas and the exchange with the locals bring a positive impact on Naples. We connect and match the energy of volunteers from all over the world with the knowledge and skills of local NGOs and Schools. We partner with schools and NGOs to provide resources that support health and welfare, environmental conservation, and education. Volunteers and interns are placed with partner NGOs and we support their placements.
