Five years ago, we received a volunteer application that was rather unusual. Instead of someone who came fresh from university, Gary had worked in consultancy for over 25 years. While he could be enjoying his retirement, he was coming to One Two… Tree! to work as a volunteer for children education in a far-away country.
After our first months of class in Zinacantán we were talking to some children and parents to find out how the summers are here, and it turns out that, especially the parents, said that the children had too much free time and that sometimes they didn’t know what to do with them. Every parent is familiar with this story, right?
