Hi, my name is Chiara and I am 23 years old. In May of this year, I accidentally came across the Facebook page of the Kora, thanks to which I discovered the existence of many interesting international projects. It didn’t seem possible. I could have an experience abroad without paying anything! So, without thinking about it too much, I sent my application for a project in Portugal on environmental sustainability and, after a month, I packed my bags and left as a volunteer for the European Solidarity Corps. The two-month experience in Portugal, together with three other Italian volunteers, was spent at the “Quinta das Relvas” farm, where I learned a lot, both practically and theoretically, about permaculture and bio-construction.
