Teaching Children Project and Spanish Course in Quito, Ecuador
         

…I wanted to do something to show I was not useless. My great passion is music and I wanted to impart some of the knowledge I have gained. I play a few instruments and I am a classically trained pianist so although not a trained teacher I have a great deal of knowledge of music. It was great to see some of the kids interested and some of them had real talent. One of them bought a guitar while I was there and I do not think he had played before.

The director was very welcoming and I felt honoured to attend a ceremony on 27th February celebrating an important battle for Ecuador.

I developed a great interest in Ecuador. People were proud of their country but not in a jingoistic way and I would love to return and see more of the country. I found the people there very friendly and it has given me a different slant on Spain as they are both Spanish speaking.

It has given me a sense of self-worth and I would recommend it as a good thing for older people who may be missing their work...
