A resident says: I never felt lonely for a second, always surrounded by amazing people. Dinner is a joyful moment of bonding, sharing thoughts and learning about each other. and a great example of people coming from different walks of life, religion and cultures can sit together in a fun and loving atmosphere. It is an example for the whole world, if you ask me, of how people can be considerate and respectful to others, regardless of their background.The area is beautiful and safe and every morning you wake up to an astonishing view.


 

"If we do not build new communities of hope and justice, the same tired solutions from the elite will offer only fleeting answers but no significant change"

Jacques Ellul.
