Adapt, overcome.

Some weeks have gone since I last wrote here. It is not always easy to find the space for reflection and it is even harder to write the ideas down. Actually, until this last week, all in my mind was a bit messy and I could not put my thoughts in order; maybe if I [...]

Night reflection

March 2nd, 2019|Categories: Blog, Events, Press release, Projects, Uncategorized|

We keep thinking that we are special souls that are living a unique experience. That what we do, what we achieve, what we want out of it is above any previous volunteer's expectations and reality.

We are already immersed in all the projects we are leading, collaborating with and coming up with. The brainstorming to think about brand-new ideas is really fun and important, I can almost say that that is the easy part.
