It was a amazing experience at Gleanings. I made new friends, the staff was kind, the food was great and I could help in different ways. It is good to find people of different ages, from different parts of the world and with different religious backgrounds working for people in need. I hope to come back in the future.

Minha experiência no host foi melhor do que eu esperava, me senti em casa, e fui muito bem acolhida durante os 16 dias em que fiquei lá. De segunda a sexta eu ajudava o pessoal com os trabalhados da comunidade, que são bem simples, e o final de semana era livre. Neste meio tempo conheci pessoas maravilhosas e um projeto encantador, que faz diferença na vida das pessoas, e isso é muito gratificante. Além disso pude melhorar o nível do meu inglês, aprendi palavras e expressões novas. Foi uma experiência enriquecedora. Com certeza irei voltar um dia <3.

The host is a wonderful place to stay. This was my first experience as a backpacker and it was awesome!
At the host you'll find the kindest people on Earth. Food was more than enough and excellent, it blows my mind.
Hours of working are somehow long and exhausting but knowing that you're doing it for the people in need makes it all better.
Rod and Henrijs are the coolest guys. They treat backpackers like family and they spoil you like if you were their son. You have the opportunity to meet backpackers from all over the world.
You won't regret staying in this host.
