Weet jij waar je voedsel vandaan komt?

Gisteren kregen we de mogelijkheid om met een aantal kinderen van de Kopila Valley School rijst te planten. Een geweldige ervaring.

The road to get here was long and at times it was hard to see an end in sight and actually picture kids using the new school but when the ribbon was cut and the kids went running up the stairs it felt incredible.
