I wanted to do my practical semester abroad to get to know a different life, culture and religion. I also felt the need to work where help was urgently needed and accepted. It was the best time in my life so far. I was able to immerse myself in a different life and a completely different culture. I have met people who had nothing, who were afflicted with illness and who lived in the most adverse conditions. Nevertheless, these people always made you feel welcome. They were grateful for every word and every help they could get. The unique thing about my stay was, on the one hand, the children, who I fell in love with so quickly. On the other hand, there are also the families and people outside the home. Getting an insight into this culture and life was enriching for me. I am grateful for every tiny step that I achieved there (HIV class, HIV workshop, working with parents, working with the kids).
