ABOUT US

United Vision focuses on sustainable rural development and promotion of volunteering.

By 2018, we were primarily concerned with raising awareness of the situation in Latin American countries and sending volunteers to rural areas of Mexico for the purpose of teaching English in a highly effective way. Our volunteers taught English in partner communities all over Mexico and had the opportunity to get to know Mexican culture from a completely different perspective than a regular tourist. Each volunteer was trained before his departure and was always provided free accommodation and food for by the partner community. The aim of the cooperation was to help local people to make use of the knowledge of English at local labour market or to start off their own business activities connected with ecotourism.

 

Starting in 2019, we plan to move from Mexico to the Czech Republic and start looking for volunteers to teach English and support other activities related to the development of the educational ecocentre in Malešov, Czech Republic. We continue to spread awareness of the situation in developing countries, but we also want to start focusing on topics related to nature conservation and sustainable development in the Czech Republic.

In addition to sending volunteers to partner organizations in the Czech Republic, we are also working on networking and cooperation with organizations in the EU and outside the EU as part of the European Voluntary Service (Erasmus +), where we are registered as the sending organization.

Helen Vodrážková – Trainer and Author of our teaching methodology

Helen is an English teacher and a promoter of sustainable life in practice. She is part of the project because she believes that motivated volunteers are delivering skills to Latin America that can change lives of local children and adults. In her opinion, volunteering also changes our western, individualistic thinking and teaches us to understand “cooperativism”, i.e. the concept of “pulling together” in order to make it better for everyone involved.
