This initiative is truly a life changing experience; being able to help is the best way to allow ourselves to grow. Contributing with a little grain of commitment to a more equal world is the best job one can ever have. There are no words that can describe the feeling we have once we arrive to Paikenape and Mañoco and see all the people welcoming us, the kids so happy to meet us and at the same time so curious about these new people that have come to visit them. From the moment we arrived we were wrapped around in hugs and laughs, this welcoming gave us a sense of true friendship and helped us realize how much everything we do for this community is worth it. This feeling is something beyond happiness and what the Secoya people and children have taught me is that pursuing this indescribable feeling of joy should be our reason to get up every morning and work hard to live the life we want to be proud of, and to create a world filled with people of hearts as big as the Secoyas.
