Organic farm at Leades House, Cork

Climate and sustainable lifestyle - Teenage Programme

Hi my name is Afonso Aristides Fragao. I am from Angola and I have been in Ireland for one year and six months. I would like to say something about the good experience I had volunteering with VSI.

In the summer people from our group went to Belgium, France, Italy and I chose Cork. I went to Cork for ten days. I stayed on an organic farm - a nice place to relax, think about life, a lot of animals ! I don't know what I can say. I think it was the best multicultural camp I had in all my life. Groups came from Belgium, France and Italy. I will never forget that experience. The leaders were so nice, friendly. We did a lot of activities, games, swam in a waterfall. I learned a lot about how you have to respect the others, sharing, etc....

I hope one day to work again with VSI. Thanks so much to the leaders for the opportunity you guys gave me. I am so grateful, god bless all you ! One love !
