Personal experiences

Quest Overseas were extremely helpful, and put us in touch through Facebook with some of the volunteers that had worked with them in Africa. We created this section based on our Facebook conversations with them.


Raising awareness:

Shows our students raising awareness in both our schools in Spain and Peru.


It also includes two presentations created by the students from material found on the Web, which were used in their ‘raising awareness sessions’, along with the videos sent by Quest Overseas.


  • Comics

Created by the students (both text and graphics)


The presentations on this page were done by students at our school, as part of the project. It was another way of raising awareness, involving other teachers and students.
* The photos used in these presentations may not be properly cited.

Content has come from other web sites

All the other sections are based on information extracted from other websites. The students read through these pages to gather information, then extracted and summarized the information, and, in some cases, added their opinion and then translated it if necessary.
