Jack - England
I had an absolutely fantastic time working at La Casita on my year abroad. Having just finished school I wanted to experience helping people and trying to give something back. I found La Casita to be a kind, warm place that did absolutely brilliant things for the local community, all thanks to the tireless work of Silvia and her son Rodrigo. I was made to feel welcome as part of the family and absolutely loved playing football with the kids and helping at meal times. Even though my Spanish was not very strong, I managed to get by and picked up lots of the language just by being at La Casita.
My 2 months in Escobar was one of the highlights of my life and I still miss the Cuevas family. I would encourage anyone looking for an eye-opening experience to seriously consider spending time at La Casita!
