CONI, our Wishmakers of the month celebrate solitary birthdays
October 30, 2015  |  Written by M. Rodrigo Brao

Our wishmaker of the month is Alex Sebastián, founder of CONI. This non-profit organization was born among a group of young voluntary workers, who decided to coordinate their skills and focus on Guatemala. CONI, declared as Public Use in 2014, does not receive money from the State. Since their expenses are taken care of in Spain by private members, they guarantee that the support they receive is entirely invested in their projects in Guatemala. Imagination, hope, energy and enthusiasm are the tools they employ to search for new ways to get people involved. Proof of this is, an original idea with which they propose to turn birthday parties into solidary events, which also teaches our children to be aware of inequalities worldwide. It´s not a question of helping but of having kids participate in the solutions.
