The idea for Domino Volunteers formed in 2014 in realizing how hard it could be find volunteer opportunities in projects that were making legitimate impact and where one's particular skills and experiences can be put to use. In Cartagena, there was an evident demand from the international community to find transparent, organized and safe ways to get outside of the small, touristic city center, interact with local culture and donate time or resources to a local community. Similarly, many foundations and social projects could use the help of volunteers, yet were unable to find, assess or coordinate them. In short, so much potential for cross cultural learning and positive change was going to waste.
Our team has a vast variety of skills and backgrounds, and diversity is a big part of our success. We believe that more collaborations = more impact, and are thankful to all those who have collaborated and supported our vision throughout the years.
