20 NGOs taking part in solidarity projects

Representatives from twenty different non-governmental organisations (NGOs) organised a conference with the theme “Enhancing Volunteering through Solidarity Projects”. The participants were all youths who have participated in the Erasmus+ program to do voluntary work in one of a number of sections, including the environment, culture, social service, with refugees, children or the elderly.

President of Malta Marie Louise Coleiro Preca and Parliamentary Secretary Aaron Farrugia addressed the conference, talking about their personal experiences doing voluntary work as youths.
