Volunteering: your time is precious, invest it

From Fundación Secretariado Gitano, we join in the celebration of 5 December, International Volunteer Day.

From the State Volunteer Coordination Network of Fundación Secretariado Gitano we join in the celebration of International Volunteer Day, to thank, recognise and make visible the impact generated by the contribution of volunteers in the development of our intervention.

The FSG's State Volunteer Coordination Network is present in 21 of the local offices from which we develop programmes. Composed of volunteers, its functions include, among others, contributing to the promotion of volunteer participation in the organisation, thus consolidating and reinforcing a very important part of our social base.

In 2023, more than 500 volunteers form part of the Fundación Secretariado Gitano's team, complementing the intervention carried out in the areas of education, employment, equality, social inclusion and participation, among others. The profile of the volunteers who dedicate their time and knowledge in favour of the integral promotion of the Roma community has the following characteristics: more than 70% are women, more than 60% are under 30 years of age and almost 56% have a university education. In addition, the FSG is a reference entity for Roma people themselves to carry out voluntary activities, as 34% of the volunteers are Roma.
