The organization is one of a kind. I was meant to spend 3 weeks here and I ended up staying for 2.5 months. That alone, I think speaks for itself. I have grown, learnt and been apart of some amazing experiences and have not once felt excluded or not apart of this incredible team. I have learnt a new language, experienced culture like no other and been welcomed by many. The children, the staff and the community are all incredible and I wouldn't change a thing about my experience with all of them. I'm leaving a different and better person!

It was my first time traveling alone. When reaching the airport they were extremely welcoming and happy to see me, this made me feel very comfortable from the start. During my stay they made sure that everything was okay for me and made me feel part of the family! They really want to make you feel good About everything you do and get to do I recommend this place to everyone.

We still need you more also



Staying in the organization was one of the most amazing things I have ever done. I can't describe the way they respect everyone and the amazing thing they're doing with the children. You are always protected and taken care of by all the people that works for the foundation. The experience is amazing in so many ways but the most valuable is to fully immerse in the local life. Thank you family for making my stay something to forever remember Kisses from Galicia ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Best foundation, so happy to be part of a great project like this. Love you and miss you all 💖
