“I have attended the GSW Paraguay trip for three consecutive years, and every year I learn something different, and it impacts me in a different way. The people in Colonel Bogado truly appreciate the life skills we help them with, and they take what we teach them and implement it in their lives. I personally think that I have evolved as a person because of this experience.
I realized how lucky I am to be able to have running water, school supplies, a house, and even being able to attend school. Something that I have truly taken for granted when these girls have no other options than to stay home and help their mothers with house work. It made me more self aware and grateful for everything I have.
This trip isn’t really just about soccer, it’s about connecting with people. I honestly think those girls taught me more than I could have ever learned at school or from any other trip. This amazing journey allows you to create life long bonds with people from all the way around the world, and even to this day I stay in contact with some of them.
I would not trade going on this trip for anything and I can’t wait to hopefully go again!”
