Pedro and his family are very generous and helpful, always willing to to explain and give you tips on what to do in the city, and always very flexible with the work days. The work is ok, but I believe it should be specified that the workshops and retreats with the kids are in another city and it’s you that has to pay for the bus ticket. His house was very dirty in general, the room I stayed in was in a different house and had all kinds of insects coming into the room, even with the door always closed.

As someone from London, farm life was a slight shock to the system - and perhaps one I really needed. An incredible experience, that took me out of my comfort zone, and was made possible by an amazing team. Pedro is brilliant, he is kind, straightforward, and funny, and really looks after all his volunteers. I could not have asked for a better host for my first volunteering and I know that we will all remain friends for life. The workshop I gave was one of the most life affirming things I have ever done. Overall, just a brilliant experience. Thank you, Pedro.

I spent 3 weeks with Pedro and he did everything to make we feel welcomed. The weekly schedule is very relaxed and you have a lot of free time to explore Bogotá and the area. It is definitely the perfect opportunity for meeting locals, improving your spanish and simply emerging in the Columbian culture. It’s been an experience I wouldn’t trade in for the world and it made me fall in love with the Columbian culture and people. 10/10 would recommend. Just make sure you know some basic Spanish beforehand:)

Well, I don’t know from where to start, before anything it was one of the best experiences of my life. That’s kind of experience reminds me why I like so much to travel. The experience with the Fundación Anawin was about love, about connection with people, about breathing with the help of the beautiful Colombians landscapes and about the generosity of Pedro. I never was so well treated in some trip of this nature. I’m very happy!!

Pedro is a very caring and sensitive host who is eager for travelers to experience as much as they share with local youths and children he works with through his foundation. He has a large dog called Aika who is adorable and will take you for walks through the park Piedras del Tunjo

I couldn't find the right words to express how fun this experience was, Pedro is the most amazing host ever and his dog Ayka is the cutest! I was able to go into amazing places where, most likely, I wouldn't had been without staying at Pedro's. He's flexible with the schedule and the kids we got to meet where too cool. I would do it again if I have the chance. No dudaría en volver a compartir esta experiencia! Estar en la fundación es una lección de vida, y te permite conocer lugares hermosos. 5 estrellas sin duda.

I went for one week to collaborate at the Fundacion, the tasks were really easy and fun photography, workshops with the kids and volunteers of the foundation. The weather is cold so bring your coat. The town is 1 hr and half from the centre of Bogota. The host is really nice and he has a crazy but fun puppy that is big jejeje so if you also love animals you nailed it. I had a great time to connect also with my spiritual side and disconnect from the routine.

Nuestra experiencia no ha podido ser como era prevista ya que una de mis amigas y yo nos pusimos malas y no pudimos realizar el voluntariado los días que habíamos previsto, Pedro ha sido súper amable y gentil con nosotras desde el primer momento así como no ha tratado de ayudar en todo. Lo único que cambiaría sería el lugar de dormir ya que no es muy confortable, pero del resto ha sido maravilloso :)

Es un buen lugar, está apartado de todo y se puede desconectar totalmente. Pedro es muy amable y conoce mucho de Colombia, por lo que te puede ayudar en muchas cosas y enseñar tareas de la granja. Como comentario constructivo diría que la limpieza de la casa puede mejorarse, ya que ni la habitación ni las zonas comunes estaban limpias, aunque siempre puedes limpiar tú mismo, como hicimos nosotros.

Gracias Pedro!

Pedro nos recibió genial. Es una persona interesante con la que se puede hablar de muchas cosas. La granja y su entorno es bonito, además las tareas son sencillas y se hacen fácilmente, son darle de comer a los animales y algunas tareas de huerto como quitar hierba. Aprendí bastantes cosas en estas dos semanas. Cosas a tener en cuenta son: hay dos casas, si te toca dormir en la de arriba, genial. La de abajo no la recomiendo. Y por otro lado considero que una buena limpieza de todo estaría bien.
Teniendo en cuenta estas cosas, recomiendo este voluntariado!
