Madrid, December 9, 2022 – This week we celebrated International Volunteer Day and we could not fail to remember the work camp that Retamar International and La Farga schools carried out this summer in Cameroon. 

Retamar alumni and students from La Farga school visited the new headquarters of Azobé school in Youndé, Cameroon, where they helped lay the foundations of the “OLOA Project”, in which the Parentes Foundation and the local EFEDI Association participate.

More than 50 members of Retamar’s 2020 and 2021 graduating classes carried out the initial work of preparing the site of the future school and prepared the work field for future visits.

La Farga, for its part, sent 19 students from the second year of high school, along with two teachers, to carry out land clearing, construction and social action activities with local children.

Volunteers from both schools also participated in social action activities and attended local events with local authorities and the EFEDI Association.

This year, under the slogan “solidarity through volunteering”, we want to highlight the important work done by young people who selflessly help projects that promote access to quality education.

Thank you very much for your involvement and we look forward to welcoming you again next summer. 

We will continue to keep you informed.
