Juntos Hay Equipo (JHE)
Fundación Juntos Hay Equipo (Together, We are a team Foundation) was born to foster high social value standards within the community like spirit of solidarity, social inclusion and equity, norms of harmonious living, respect for the common good, healthy habits and environmental care.
Furthermore, we cooperate in the dissemination of different social and environmental causes and campaigns at the national and international level by providing subsidiary collaboration to nonprofit organizations, third sector entities and specialized agencies or agencies that work in the field with some of the causes also dealt with by the Foundation.
Juntos Hay Equipo is a solidarity initiative created by María Carolina Bilotta, specialist in Social Responsibility, who decided, in 2013, to take concrete concepts to action of Solidarity, Love for the other and, what she considered to be her true gift of transmitting passion for what she did, Motivation of other people to share and multiply their gifts to become change agents and transform their reality.
The premise and conviction of the power of transformation of the little good loving actions were the result of her experiences as a volunteer in different NGO’s and her trip to Calcutta, Republic of India, where she took on Humanitarian Aid with the congregation of Missionaries of Charity of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
Motivated by the ideas of her great inspiration, Juan Carr, creator of Red Solidaria and nominee to the Nobel Peace Prize, she wanted to acquire and replicate the “Culture of the Other One” concept, which means there is someboby else apart from ourselves that needs us. After almost five years and a lot of effort and dedication, this solidarity initiative became Fundación Juntos Hay Equipo.
Since 2013 we’ve been working in the dissemination and promotion of high social value and moral standards and, thus, we believe in the importance of collaborating and achieving sustainable development in all communities so that our generation and future generations can have a healthier, happier and more peaceful life. To achieve this target, we will continue to use our Solidarity Agenda, following the dates of every national and international and social and environmental cause and event. In the next five years we will strive to continue coordinating our projects with some of the 17 goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We know that the world can become a better place to live in and for that reason we believe that all 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda and our high social value and moral standards call for the commitment of every one of our community and the international community. Working as a team is the way to achieve those objectives.
From the start, Juntos Hay Equipo has collaborated with the following 2030 Goals:
