“The Way has its own way” is a project aimed at walking 61 km of the Portuguese Way of St. James, starting from Pontevedra and going on till Santiago, with a group of 6 disabled people and 3 educators. In this video we can see a little about some of the individuals taking part in this experience. 

In this way, we are making accessible to our youngsters the possibility of participating in  innovative activities and finding a way to value the true potential within each one of them. This project represents a unique adventure for them, where the social interactions between human beings and the coming back to the essentials in life can be felt all way through. 

With this project, we also hope to provide a deepening experience to any other partipants  walking  the Way, by giving them the possibility of  social interactions with our young people.

Budget and due dates

We are hoping to raise 900 euros until the end of Spring. This amount will allow us to cover travel, board and lodgings expenses. One of our vans will give support, if needed, all the way through the experience, as well as carry all the luggage and necessary items. We are going to spend four nights in hostels (Pontevedra, Caldas de Reis, Padrón e Santiago de Compostela) for 6 clients and 3 educators. In terms of food, we are expecting to spend 7,40 euros a day for each participant. Budget plan: Food: 333 euros Travel: 210 euros Lodging: 360 euros The detailed budget plan is attached.
