A witness by Alejandro Marius, Founder of Trabajo y Persona, A Venezuelan NGO, Sponsored by the WorkCenter


In the vacant places
We will build with new bricks
Where the bricks are fallen
We will build with new stone
Where the beams are rotten
We will build with new timbers
Where the word is unspoken
We will build with new speech
There is work together
A Church for all
And a job for each
Every man to his work.

~T.S. Eliot, Choruses from "The Rock"

Alejandro Marius – founder of Trabajo y Persona – is transforming the concept of the workplace as a painful necessity into a place of enjoyment and fulfillment in Venezuela. Their objectives are three-fold:

To promote all activities that empower the person in his/her workplace in all sectors.

To develop programs that strengthen vocational/technical training, particularly for young people and vulnerable groups.

To promote a better dissemination of the concept of work culture.
