I first encountered the organization at the 2018 UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Feature Conference hosted by Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania where I also presented a paper.

Comundos gives voice to the voiceless, lets their stories inspire others and creates a precious linkage between remote hopes and dreams. One of the links of this chain are the volunteers Comundos counts on, of which one of them is me, Leyre. As the Volunteer of the Year 2018, I would like to share my experience with Comundos during the last 12 months.

With only a razor blade and a small comb I make money in my school by shaving the heads of students. Thanks to this activity, I am able to buy some of my school needs and snacks. The students also look neat and tidy. That is also the reason I am happy doing it.


Deutsche Welle’s Global Media Forum is the only international media conference that brings together decision-makers and influencers from the worlds of journalism, digital media, politics, business, civil society and academia. Comundos gave a presentation which was highly the audience on ´ Leveraging technology and media literacy to unlock transversal competences´.

Some didactical material was developed to use the digital stories. The stories can be used as an introduction to start a debate in a classroom / group and work constructively on a theme.

Here we list stories that have additional files to download ( annex).
