Review of SOLIDASUR by Rose Pevency

I went to teach but they taught me more¡

I had some of the best weeks of my life in Colombia, I went there to teach English but the children and people from Cali ended up teaching me more than I ever thought I would. I am really thankful to SOLIDASUR for this experience and to the local team for being an excellent local team and helping us 24/7. I think my whole experience there is one of the favorite times of my life so it’s hard to pick just one. But the feeling of having to wake up at 7am every day and being excited to go to my placement is a feeling that I know I’ll never feel again, I have never been excited about waking up at 7am before! But getting to my placement and seeing all the kids smiling and hugging you has to be one of the best feelings in the world. Also, my first day there discovering this new country and meeting all the other volunteers was a really good moment as well.
