In what way is Sintra ComPassion Movement different from any other traditional organization?
Since its beginning in 2012, Sintra ComPassion has been seen as a movement catalyst of compassion. While traditional organizations manage their headquarters through paid staff to implement their programs, Sintra ComPassion is a network of volunteers. Everyone who envolve themselves with this movement is commited to the mission of the Movement, its fundamental values and its operative principles. Each volunteer can interact as much as dynamic as well as professional, working with local churches, third sector organizations or any other area of influence in society (economy, arts, education...). As these volunteers multiply in many parishes of the county, they will also be encouraged to implement their own ideas in various fields of social intervention. Through people, and specically those who assume leadership positions, all kinds of organizations can take part in the Movement promoting the message locally, training people and mobilizing the whole community in a vision of ComPassion.
