The programme started on the initiative of São Paulo staff, who wanted to be more involved in the everyday life of their community and has since gradually spread throughout the entire country.
The volunteers choose an organisation they want to work with and then visit it once a month. To facilitate this, the Carrefour Group offers:
- 4 hours of work per month
- Return transport to and from the beneficiary institution
- Training and supervision for groups of volunteers
- Provision of a Volunteer kit comprising a T-shirt and teaching and communication materials.
