YOUNG MEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
The NGO we have chosen is called ‘’Ymca’’, it’s a worldwide organization based on Geneva, Switzerland with more than 57 million beneficiaries from 125 national associations.
It was founded on 6th of June 1844 by George Williams in London and aims to put Christian principles into practice by developing a healthy “body, mind, and spirit.”
Ymca, has local presence and global reach. They mobilize local communities to affect lasting, meaningful change.
The goals are to bring people together, because they connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
They also nurtures potential. They say that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
And, as we like what these organization does, we want to contributte doing something, we want to help them, so with the Project of ‘’Atocha Solidaria’’ we have decided to organize a benefit gig in our school wih loads of performances such as a rock concert, rap singers, original dances… All the funds we get will be given to the association.
In conclusión, we’re looking forward to helping this NGO because the labor they do is awesome and a really nice example of solidarity.
