Volunteers and local groups
Become a World
Becoming a World Friends volunteer means joining a community of people bound by solidarity. Our volunteers are located in different Italian cities, they share our values and dedicate part of their time to our mission.
The tasks of the volunteers are different and important: spreading World Friends initiatives locally, organizing fundraising events in support of cooperation projects, dedicating part of their time to project activities, officially representing the Association in meetings with local institutions or attending local events organized by third parties on behalf of World Friends.
Our volunteer groups (Italy only)
Il missionary group of Birone, a fraction of the municipality of Giussano in the province of Monza, has supported the activities of World Friends for many years. The group's initiatives, carried out mainly during the Christmas period, offer precious help, collecting donated funds every year for our projects in Kenya and Italy.
The Runsmile Amateur Sports Association Runsmile has been actively supporting the work of World Friends for years, in particular by promoting a training program for the annual participation in the relay Milan Marathon and by recruiting charity runners. Both through the training and the relay, Runsmile raises funds for World Friends projects and is an invaluable partner in organizing awareness-raising activities in the area during the marathon period.

Peaks Doc - World Friends
World Friends history has been linked to the mountain since its origins: the historic support of the CAI of Acqui Terme has created a strong bond of our association with the mountain, pushing us to create a dedicated group. The section was born with this spirit "Peaks Doc - World Friends" which aims to promote outdoor and mountaineering activities, initiatives and sporting events, aimed at supporting cooperation projects and raising awareness of the synergy between these two worlds.
