Work camp with Australian college students
Warrane College in Sydney, Australia, organized a volunteer work camp in Mexico during July in which 13 college students participated.
The project took place at the Atoyac School in Mexico City. It had two purposes: teaching English to high school students and painting some of the school rooms. Those taking part also had the opportunity to pray at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, located not far from the school, and to visit other cultural and religious sites.
The project, in which Mexicans and Australians worked side by side, provided an opportunity to make new friends and to live a practical spirit of service. Afterwards, the students attended the World Youth Day in Toronto.
