Foretica reports on the ENGAGE volunteering programme in Madrid and Barcelona

Posted: Friday 27 July 12, 1.09pm GMT

Foretica’s ENGAGE Madrid and ENGAGE Barcelona Programmes successfully completed their first activity in June 2012.

This first part of the project lasted three months in which corporate volunteers addressed the different social needs faced by communities in Madrid and Barcelona. This included helping homeless people become more independent and self-sufficient, as well as participating in environmental restoration activities.

More than 90% of the volunteers were satisfied with the programme and have confirmed that their participation has contributed to greater collaboration within their teams at work, has increased their knowledge and skills and served to raise their awareness of diversity.

The activity lasted three months with the participation of representatives from Foster Wheeler Energía, HP, MERCK y Vodafone, who collectively donated more than 150 hours of corporate volunteering.
Forética is already working in the organization of the second part of this international volunteering programme.
