RomAltruista ("Altruistic Rome") is a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 to introduce in Rome the concept of flexible volunteering. RomAltruista believes that everyone should have the opportunity to volunteer for a cause they believe in, no matter how much time they have and how busy their life is!
RomAltruista has replicated the model developed by HandsOn Network (present in 250 cities, with 2.6 million volunteers in the world) and has become a bridge between the non-profit sector and citizens, matching the demand for volunteers with the volunteers available in Rome.

RomAltruista has built a large database of volunteering opportunities in the city and province, open to everyone, including those who have just one free hour. 10,000 volunteers have already their network. RomAltruista works to make flexible volunteering possible in Rome by connecting nonprofits with volunteers and building and supporting corporate volunteering programs.
