Spend some time in the great outdoors with these kids from Al-Andalusia Among various activities that we did, there was this one particular activity where the kids had to write and/or illustrate our dreams (where we wanted to go in life, etc) in this so-called “dream board” Even though you might not be able to see it clearly in the picture, it was really refreshing to read what they wrote/illustrated, from simply wanting to go to Seaworld to see the fishes, to climbing Mount Semeru, visiting the Eiffel Tower and – what most of them wrote – being able to take their parents to Mecca to visit the holy Kaaba, So inspired by how selfless yet motivated and driven these kids are!
