Some love for our donors

This spring, we had a campaign to send two of our young women for a year of volunteering on a kibbutz in Israel.

You, our friends and supporters, came through with everything we needed, and – after a few COVID-related bumps – we got them on a flight.

They had to quarantine for two weeks on landing and they’re settling into their new life now, meeting other volunteers from all over the world and learning about life in the desert (so different from their home in the lush Sacred Valley!)

I wanted to share directly some words of gratitude from the girls themselves.

Hola a todos soy Guadalupe Centeno.


Escribo este mensaje para darles las gracias por todo el apoyo que recibí por parte de cada uno de ustedes.


Muchas gracias por darme está GRAN oportunidad de poder lograr y cumplir una meta más en mí vida.


Su apoyo me permitirá crecer en diferentes aspectos de mí vida, personales o de trabajo. Cada una de las cosas que he pasado me han permitido avanzar y crecer en la vida y aunque aveces no tuve como solventarlo , en está oportunidad gracias a ustedes pude lograr este nuevo sueño en mí vida, lo que hicieron por mí permitió que logrará una de las cosas que deseaba.


Voy aprendiendo poco a poco y eso se debe a las personas maravillosas que llegaron a mí vida como Viviana y Avishai quienes pusieron más luz, confianza y seguridad en mí, me enseñaron a crecer en la vida y aún sigo en ese camino de crecimiento. A Lauren quien fue la persona quien hizo los contactos y me ayudó con este proyecto para poder cumplir mí deseo( sueño) e hizo que este proceso sea más fácil, rápido y seguro para nosotras.

Estoy muy feliz y emocionada por esta nueva aventura y conocimiento

Muchas gracias por todo 😘
