I have long read and knew about Camino de Santiago; however due to work commitments, I was never able to take it on.
However, after much pondering, I am convinced that this year would be the best time to step out and put myself up for this journey. The route is 780km long and would take me approximately 35 days to complete.
This is a personal belief and reminder to myself that I should always challenge my limits and see how far I can go.
Personally, I also believe that every child is unique and they deserve to be given every opportunity to develop their greatest potential. Special needs individuals are equally capable of pushing their limits to be the best they can ever be.
APSN actively trains and empowers special needs child, developing them to be active contributors for the society.
I invite you to make a donation to support their programmes and trainings.
What is The Good Way?
Along the journey, everyone will greet each other "Buen Camino!" which literally means good path. I hope that you will join me in supporting APSN through The Good Way and support them in their efforts and programmes.
