weXplore: service learning in Biancavilla, Italy

During our time in Biancavilla, we stayed with a family who work together to create a safe space for newcomers and locals to Italy escaping a troubled time in their life. The family’s hearts are open and giving, and our weXplore Sicily group got the chance to experience their hospitality, hear their humbling stories, and contribute to their countryside farm and space.

Our group took care of their therapy donkeys, Esmeralda and Dada, cut the fresh lavender bushes for them to sell in the market, removed brush from a hillside to prevent forest fires, learned how to make mosaics out of broken plates and glasses, and began the plan and construction for a compost bin to better fertilize their organic farm.

It was such a pleasure to share the experience with our TGS students!
