An experience of voluntary work and of co-operation



Núria Terradas, new voluntary worker in Paraguay

01/02/2007: Paraguay

On the 23rd January, Nuria Terradas Prat, associate and volunteer of SED and teacher from the Marist Valldemia College of Mataró, left for Paraguay to be involved in the different works of the Marist mission of Paraguay for the whole 2007 school year.

This new experience as a volunteer worker with the NGO SED and the Marist Province of L’Hermitage is trying to strengthen two very different milieux of the Marist mission of this country. On one hand, Núria will be linked to the brothers’ community in Horqueta, residing in the house of Zuny Silva, a teacher from the Alejo García school, from where she will support the informal educational milieux of the town, the centre for street children Mitangüera Rekové and the residence for young girls from the countryside: the “Three Violets”. On the other hand, Núria will carry out different works of follow up and of co-ordination of projects, grants and work-mission campaigns of SED in Paraguay, trying to strengthen the network of relationships with the different local counterparts with whom SED is linked: Marist Sector, Apostolic Vicariate of Pilcomayo and the NGO JOPOI among others.

The personal pathway that Núria has followed until this year of mission has been long and serene: in 2000 she approached SED to participate in that year’s Introduction Campaign for International Solidarity and she was assigned to groups of the Mission Work Campaign of Santa Teresita and de Pozo Colorado. Subsequently in 2005, she was once more involved in the same campaign, being assigned to the group of voluntary workers of CTM de Fischat. This time, she preferred to be involved with the SED_Casal group which developed in a systematic way the actions of voluntary service in the milieux of the creation of educational materials, the follow up of projects and of animation and the formation of voluntary workers, among others.

In September 2005 she requested her involvement as an associate of SED and became part of the Regional Committee, the co-ordinating group of the SED delegation in Catalonia. Since the start of 2006, her process of formation for this service started now to be reinforced with different formatives spaces, such as the one called “Marcelino, punto y seguido”, the participation in project courses of the Catalonian Federation of NGOs and the participation, with Brother Manuel Mendoza, in the co-ordination works of SED in Paraguay during the months of July and August, among others.

We wish her the best for this new experience.

SED, delegation of Catalonia.
