Yasmine Hadj Ali, France

This experience was decisive for me, unique life experience that taught me so many things in different areas. When I arrived in Argentina, I was in an almost constant introspection that allowed me to have a deeper reflection, and another view of things. further, He lived with other volunteers, and I had to learn to live with people who did not know, they did not have the same culture I. It was very difficult to adapt to another way of working, feel away from her family, and be at the same time with foreigners, but thanks to this principle difficult, I could take more distance and realize very personal things. I feel strong enough to take my emotions and I learned to realize the complexity of what surrounds us, to have more empathy for others, everyone has their own experience, that their actions are legitimized by their past, no one can judge.

 

Something happened, It was very important to me: the first theater workshop, I felt a real difference, as if he had done therapy, He had more prone to relativize. It marked the beginning of adaptation in Buenos Aires. I enjoyed the workshops with the kids, I lived those moments intensely without thinking about the end. When the end of my volunteer arrived I again had profound reflections on volunteering, What surrounds me, and myself. It was very frustrating to leave everything as it was appropriating the project, while we were beginning to establish relationships, to be with children or with other volunteers. Establish relationships of complicity, and even friendship, and separated. It was painful to part from people who represented everything I lived, that make me now. I realized that volunteering filled me, that volunteering was an attitude, I wanted to consider these projects as horizons that could generate things. Establish a relationship with the child that allows the change possible.

 

Now I have another image in my mind: I am facing a great work, I choose the tools, the shape of the building and how to build it. I realized the many paths that opens. It is a chapter that opens, and now I know I want to exploit what I discovered there, and discover more. This experience allowed me to stop, take the time to look around me, take another look, more open and curious, He taught me a lot about myself, About the others, and about life in general, then I'm living but I'm not the same, advanced, and I hope to go further and more !

Stella, France

My experience with Subir al Sur is sure one of the moments of my life that contributed most to enrich myself as a person and was an important starting point for waking me greater motivation and interest in international volunteering.

I wanted to make a volunteer experience in Latin America and I know because I've always had a passion for this beautiful country, Argentina . It was purely by chance that I met Subir al Sur, coincidence that today thank you very much.

 

What I caught my attention when I saw the site of Subir al Sur was the phrase on the front page "If you came to help me're wasting your time . But, If you come because you think your liberation is connected to mine, so, let's work together". And this phrase accurately reflect the concept of volunteerism was looking. For me volunteering in general is a way to see the concept of "work" from a different perspective. Everything is based on "the will" of each person to engage in a project that like to be close to their values ​​and collaborate with others, They are sharing the same values, to build something that can contribute positively to any cultural enrichment, spiritual of societies, large and small. The extraordinary thing about volunteering is that what you give is almost always much less than what you get. You realize that the time spent with these people, they are children, teens, greater, contemporary, He has placed in you seeds that are extremely precious and an unquantifiable value. It is difficult to explain in words the energy in projects am, It is an energy that can be born only when cultures, Languages, religions and values ​​come together to communicate, know each other and learn together. But nevertheless, there are also challenges , misunderstandings, contrasting looks, as normal and "healthy" found in any multicultural space, but sometimes confronting these challenges and achieving a solution, You can also enrich and give you an idea of ​​the difficulties that can arise when different cultures meet.

 

It was an absolute pleasure for me to work with this partnership and see the vitality and strength that encourage people to lead and participate in these projects. I saw every day and in every project wanting to improve, encouraged, to learn, collaborate and now I try to make these values ​​part of my daily life. It was for me a way to approach a whole new way to other cultures, share mine, learn from others and especially to use my time in the most productive way possible, because these are the experiences that make you grow as a person and above all take you to have a greater awareness of this wonderful and colorful world around us.
