The Teresian School in Dublin (Ireland) celebrates now eleven years working with the Teresian group of Villa El Salvador, Peru. The project began eleven years ago when Inés Neira, the Teresian School Manager, in conjunction with Janett Ramirez from Solydes, proposed to bring a group of students to Peru to raise awareness about the poverty in that area of the country. Since that year, 2006, nine groups of students have passed through Villa El Salvador accompanied by teachers and and former mothers and past pupils. The experience now continues with the Centro Cultural Guadix team.
