    “The best thing about my solidarity trip to Peru was working with boys and girls who, even though they experience difficult situations at home, They know how to value the love and dedication of those of us who go there to be with them. It is very gratifying to collaborate with them: they are good and very affectionate boys and girls.

    “The best thing about my experience in Nepal was the location of the project, in the Ramithi neighborhood, which allows for a total immersion in Nepali life. I lived in its streets and breathed its “crazy peace”. It's very close to Bouddhanah, one of those places I can never get enough of!”

    Collaborated in: rescued animal care in Bolivia.

    • Main tasks: meal preparation, cage cleaning, etc. 
    • traveled: from August 21 to September 10, 2017. 
    “Bolivia is a very different country from the ones I had seen. It has been my first solidarity trip and I have been very impressed. I had never been to a "Southern" country. And I had never worked during my holidays and knowing that my work is really needed.  Perhaps that is the best feeling of all: knowing that you are useful., that your work matters, that the animals recognize you, are happy that you are there and show you their love.
    Another great thing and that I have to thank for this trip is the restructuring of your schemes in your head: the culture shock is strong, but it does not mean that it is bad at all, the other way around. It is an injection of faith in people."

    “I have loved my trip to know the way of seeing life and thinking of the Tibetans. They have firm beliefs, a very kind character and a very peaceful outlook on life. They see the positive side of things, even though they have been through tough and difficult situations in life. It motivates them a lot to learn English and they are very constant in it”.

    • Main tasks: support for children with disabilities in therapy with horses. 
    • traveled: from September 6 to October 17, 2017. 

    “I liked being able to live in a Bolivian family. The experience is more complete when you live integrated into the daily customs of a family there. Family that was wonderful to me. In addition, I have loved the relationship with children. Being surrounded by animals and children and seeing the relationship that arises between them, how they connect from the most emotional point of view, has been really nice”.
