On a Mission in Paraguay and Argentina


Recently a team of young Germans returned from outreach when they visited our projects in Paraguay and Argentina.

They brought back unforgettable encounters, such as the one with a family from Ñemby (Asunción, Paraguay). They had invited the team members for lunch. They had prepared a special cake for the occasion with the words "Thank you for your visit". During their time in Paraugay, they supported the team there for a week and organized a special event for the children of the neighborhood on the Day of the Child in Paraguay.

Afterwards, they took a 24-hour bus ride to Jujuy, Argentina, where the kids and team were already waiting for them. The little ones were delighted with the new toys they had brought with them, which were purchased thanks to donations for the trip. The team also lent a hand with repair work on the exterior of the Day Care Center building. And, of course, there were also opportunities to get to know the local team and to go on excursions together.

It is also possible to stay longer for at least six months with the International Youth Volunteer Service. More information is available here.
