“The Buddhist point of view takes the function of work to be at least threefold: to give a man a chance to utilise and develop his faculties; to enable him to overcome his ego-centredness by joining with other people in a common task; and to bring forth the goods and services needed for a becoming existence” – Small is beautiful: Economics as if people mattered. E. F. Schumacher
In the Foundation we have already started the Volunteer Groups, a project developed together with the team of delegates with the aim of creating a channel and a space for collaboration between the Foundation and families. Each group will be self-managed, will have a coordinator by the school and one by the families and will be dedicated to a specific task: cleaning, restoration, library, garden and forest, maintenance, creative processes and events. Many of these groups are already active and functioning and others need more volunteer hands. From the Foundation we firmly believe in a circular economy project where the whole community can benefit from the project, donating their time, but also receiving workshops, training, knowledge and a space of connection with themselves and with others.
