Valencia, Spain -- Volunteering for Repairs

A group of teachers from the Xabec Center for Professional Formation organized a volunteer activity to carry out domestic repairs in homes of poor people and homeless shelters. Teachers and alumni first visited the installations to see what work needed to be done, and then drew up a plan. Accompanied by their teachers and other professionals, the students at Xabec volunteer their time, putting into practice skills they have learned in the classroom: electronics, automation and robotics, air conditioning, heating, etc. The volunteers thus are helped to see the social dimension of their work, which can be exercised with Christian charity for the service of others.
