LEARN

Our boot camp provides what we call ‘survival kit’, for getting a meaningful and best possible experience out in the field. Through innovative and collaborative workshops, we build up the core skills allowing efficiency and clarity on goals, helping you thrive at your volunteering challenge.
Our learning areas’ kit is based on needs and demand for a more strategic approach to preparation for a volunteering assignment and desire to understand what makes a positive social impact.
At our boot camp you learn how to plan your impact, how to design social impact strategy and how to awaken the authentic entrepreneur in you.

ABOUT US

Who We Are

Generation Why Not is a non-profit organization with a purpose of facilitating impact-driven volunteerism by building people’s skills and providing them with a working experience in a social business. Our passion is to develop skills and literacy in understanding how impact is planned and carried out and then put what’s learned to the test in a volunteering mission. We are about that one, intense, life-changing experience, through which we get to know ourselves and various ways of how we can contribute to the community of social change-makers. Our impact-driven volunteers learn, travel, explore and ultimately immerse themselves to live the full cycle of impact. Impact-driven volunteering is our means of transforming the society towards a more equal, inclusive and eco-responsible world.

    PARTNERS

    Somewhere out there, there are people who are already involved in changing our world for the better. They are doing their best to build and rebuild communities and create positive social impact, for all of us. Meet them. Get to know them.

    Here at Warm Heart, we are dedicated to finding relevant solutions to support and enable local communities in becoming socially and economically sustainable. Through a cooperative effort we are addressing family care, education, microenterprise, environmental concerns, and health care for the elderly and needy. Together with our volunteers, we try to put an end to the cycle of poverty by empowering a child, a village, a community. With us, you can work in Children’s Home, learn ways how to restore land and use more sustainable agriculture methods, support local weavers into entering the global market, or contribute to the local public health initiatives.

    Our Fairhills Fairtrade Project combines wine production with community development. A volunteer interested in our social business will be able to see how a vineyard was able to also transform lives of people by providing them with life-changing benefits. A wider social impact includes access to the computer centre for skills training, day-care facilities for the employees' children, support of entrepreneurial initiatives in crafts making and coffee production, adult literacy program, a mobile medical unit to visit local farms and schools and some others are in the pipeline. As a successful project, our idea further scaled in farms in Argentina and Chile.
