“We always start a volunteering project with the intention of helping and donating time, ability, knowledge, but invariably we end up receiving way more. It was an honor to work with SITAWI that captains the mission of Finance for Good in the country and to learn about Social Impact Measurement.”
Maya Yonehara, Social Finance volunteer
“To be a volunteer is to believe collectively in a broader cause. SITAWI’s cause, focused on positive social and environmental impact, is called Finance for Good. The organization, due to the seriousness and quality of the proposed work, is able to get together a group of amazing and innovative people that end up offering the volunteers an amazing learning experience.”
Danilo Cerqueira, Fundraising volunteer
