Additional Information
This project is one of several that we want to open this year. This is an opportunity for volunteers around the world to live the experience of One Year in Mission, as has been the case here at SAD in recent years. Every year we have several teams of young people who work in some region in need for a year. They are usually teams of 9-12 young people, separated by gender (female and male), live in separate houses (but close to each other) or there is a leader inside the house (usually a pastor) and the girls and boys rooms are separated. The idea is to bring someone who speaks English to teach these young people and also the community in which they are in the centers of influence.
