We met last Friday! A small group of 7 people coming from different countries, ages and with different experiences. We were having a weekend together to learn about things related with development and education and, mainly, to learn from each other.
It has been a great time! We have listened different stories from previous volunteers, dealt about security issues, faced challenges that can arise from cultural encounters, known about the special needs in education or, also, gone through some theory.
But also, we have had time to enjoy the sun, to have some food and to drink a lot of coffee: actually, to finished it!
It has been a good start, but we all feel there is much to be done, individually and in groups, in the future challenges we are facing.
Although, we are going to go to different destinations, we have all become very motivated and ready to start in our fieldwork.
Good luck to everyone and keep in touch!
