Intercultural Exchange

Even though Sayariy is a local organization, we firmly believe in the power and richness of intercultural exchange. When volunteers from different parts of the world are welcomed into these forgotten communities, the two-way exchange that happens has an incalculable value: people from diverse sociocultural backgrounds coincide and converge, sharing unforgettable experiences.

Those who come from afar immerse themselves completely into the local culture, by living with families that will share their environment, gastronomy, customs, culture, celebrations and, especially, their unique kindness and hospitality that those of us who have ever felt it will never forget. Without a doubt, anyone who is coming should be ready to leave… wanting to come back !! :)︎︎

For the local community, receiving and hosting people coming from abroad, it is a fantastic opportunity to get to know new ideas, perspectives, traditions, cultures, music, books, learn languages, exchange recipes, try new flavors…

The work our international volunteers do is highly valuable and is part of the community development that Sayariy is promoting. However, the most interesting and important part of this experience is the intercultural bonds that are forged.

There’s no better tool to combat hate speech and demonization than human bonds. This is a transformative challenge that inspires those who join these experiences to learn, understand, share and cooperate from Solidarity. A broad vision based on The Equality principle and the acceptance of diversity and differences. Thus creating a network of people who take action, agents of a positive change that, united, build a more peaceful and sustainable global future.

Do not hesitate, join us!
