In Arrouquelas, the biggest part of the population is old people, so we pretend that these volunteers create a bigger interaction between young and old people.

The volunteers will be divided in 3/4 different spaces, but they will develop a work together: One of them will work at «H2O»’s headquarters taking care of our children, after school time, developing with them funny and interesting activities.
