Review of Fundación En Vía by Jessica Grans
Unique and enriching experience
Volunteering with En Via was one of the best decisions I made. I Immediately felt connected to other foreigners and travelers through a community that wants to improve the lives of local Oaxacans. Heading out of the city bustle to connect with an indigenous community and work with the children to expand their language skills was a highlight of my week. The community I worked in was peaceful and beautiful and laid back. The children were delightful and charming even in their ocasional rebellious or timid moments. I enjoyed the challenge, but always felt supported by the coordinators. I came to feel as though I, also was a part of the community I taught in. Very enriching and memorable.
