Yes Projects

without comments

One knows better when you experience this type of adventure. All the good and bad of this experience has taught me something valuable. And without doubt, I am richer after having lived. On the other hand, I believe in cooperation in the long term, i.e. in sustainable projects in time. I believe that developing countries need to receive aid in infrastructure, training, but who should lead to future projects are themselves. Why I don’t believe in these volunteer projects as a sustainable means of improving society.Volunteers are going and return.

They stay. However, despite these ideas myself, these volunteer projects are an injection of hope, freshness and rapprochement of different worlds. These projects are absolutely compatible with the long-term cooperation of which spoke. The financial support for these organizations that make a very silent and essential work is necessary. The support in the dissemination of their activities is necessary.

The face-to-face support is necessary at the time. And clear that Yes, they are necessary projects as there was once a circus to put a grain of sand in the displays of new and different aspects of leisure, so important in the growth of all, and they are required to publicize the work of organizations that both here and there, they are helping to change society. Now I feel all the economic and personal effort I’ve done in India was worth it just for the first hour I spent in New Light with the children. Children in india have a penetrating gaze, with those eyes so dark, and the New Light, conquer you just meet you because you embrace and kiss as if you were his best friend, you caress, smile at you and you will melt and you feel attached to them in a way that hardly happens here. India is a country full of contrasts, wonderful, but hard. Calcutta is an impact for the senses that is difficult to explain and perhaps only understand living in first person.
