SCI Madrid was represented by Anna Spezie, the coordinator, who presented the SCI International movement, its history and mission to promote volunteering for peace around the world. She talked about the importance of international volunteer programs and highlighted local initiatives and actions, sharing the goals and main results of the work and collaborations in recent years. She presented projects that SCI is carrying out in the Community of Madrid, aimed at improving the lives of vulnerable groups of the population. In the conclusion of her presentation, Anna argued the main reasons why she considers valuable SCI Madrid to be part of Fevocam.

At the end of the Assembly, the members proceeded to vote, and with a favorable vote of the absolute majority, SCI Madrid and other NGOs were incorporated into the association.

“We are pleased to announce that from today we are part of that platform of volunteer entities of the Community of Madrid! This is great news and a privilege for our organization. We are very proud to take this important step on our way, and it is planned to implement many collaborations and synergies together with other entities so that all people have the same rights and to improve Spanish society in general!” – says Anna Spezie, coordinator of SCI Madrid.

“It is a joy to see how the Platform is growing and entities that want to work, together with others, to promote and spread volunteering in our Community become part of it. In addition, we believe that the union of the entities strengthens the network and allows it to have a greater reach and, with all this, contribute to social justice and the development of our society.” – comments Alfonso Fajardo, president of FEVOCAM.
