Kubuka (former Mas Por Ellos)

Kubuka is a Kenyan and Zambian based NGO created by a group of Spanish friends. We know them well and couldn’t recommend them enough, as we volunteered in Kenya with them for five months. They are doing a wonderful work, empowering and assisting children and adults in underdeveloped areas. Some of their activities include funding of children to attend school, an orphanage and different project in Kibera, Africa’s second largest slum.

The I am Immigrant is a project created by our dear friend and journalist André Naddeo. It provides assistance and gives visibility to refugees from war-torn countries living in Europe. Currently, André has expanded his work and is also independently volunteering with immigrants coming from Sub-Saharan Africa in southern Italy as well as with Venezuelans living in Brazil.

Managed by a group of former university students, they run several projects over there, ranging from the anti-fascist struggle to the assistance of immigrants, female empowerment and the incentive of sustainable food consumption through the relationship with small producer and more.

Think twice Brazil

Many children in the back and a phrase saying "what is your role in the world?" in portuguese

The Think Twice Brazil is a movement of engagement, social awareness and reassessment of the common sense, created by the couple Fe and Gabi, who we had the pleasure of meeting briefly in São Paulo once. The couple travelled around the world in 2014, searching for experiences of empathy, getting to know social projects worldwide and getting connected with people from different cultures and realities. We haven’t had the chance to work with the Think Twice Brazil – yet! But we follow their work with great enthusiasm and encourage everyone to get to know them better!
