In Thabarwa we met wonderful people. We learned a lot from the people of the community and they took care of us as if we were from home.
Sometimes working in the sun was hard but usually we could rotate. It is a beautiful project that we are sure will continue improving every day.
Thank you to the community for everything you taught us and the people we take with us!🤗

I have really enjoyed my time here. If I didn’t already have a flight, I’d stay another month! I have met incredible people and built friendships that I know will last. There is a true feeling of community and family. I have loved learning about Italian culture. I definitely recommend this experience! 💚🇮🇹👍🏻

I had an excellent time and would thoroughly recommend spending time here - everyone was very friendly, helpful and accomodating. I learnt many things and stayed longer than planned while having an overall wonderful time.
Mi bisogno stare di nuovo!
