We have been doing volunteering work for the last three months and our experience has been awesome and pleasant because all the people that we have met were very nice and hard-working.
On our first day we met two coordinators and thanks to them we learnt what the meaning of Fair Trade is. Fair Trade is like an organitation for helping poor or disabled people.
On the second day we met a person who works in Apainer association (this association works with people that are disabled). We talked to him about what their company did and he told us they made notebooks and bookmarks. He showed us three beautiful notebooks in their shop.
And the other days we were helping the coordinators in the shop and we did a lot of things, like preparing boxes with food and jewellery for the Christmas campaign or showing the products to the customers. At Christmas many people bought a lot of things, so we collected a lot of money for poor people and doing this, we felt better people. We also contributed to the association because we love helping people that need it.
Finally, we recommend helping people because with actions like these, you can contribute to making the world a better place.
