As for being a participant on the training course… WOW! We were meeting orphans from Ukraine who could barely speak English, and who became the greatest of friends, just through learning to make a fire. Never in my life have I seen a better example of how humanity can communicate without language. The entire week was a celebration of non-verbal communication and infinite possibilities of empowerment through outdoor education. We were also able to discuss how it was appropriate in the participants’ different countries – with special interest coming from the participants from Belarus.
