Its time for a community challenge!

We have been so inspired by all the interactive dialogues through campaigning and decided to host and sponsor an online workshop to engage individuals (hopefully energetic students and professionals) in social humanitarian work. And to keep it interesting best interventions selected by our jury members will be rewarded free mentorship and 500 Euros worth of prizes.

The purpose of the workshop is to offer responsible individuals means and know-how to help empower socially excluded individuals and homeless. The online workshop has already launched but will extend it till end of April to encourage people from all over the world to contribute to "Empower the Person Campaign".

Workshop participants can enroll anytime by sending the following details to communitychallenge.bcn@gmail.com:
