SIGHTSEEING

This is also part of our programme because we believe that getting out of the city is a good way to stress out.

It is also an opportunity to discover the country and see what is going on around us because we may have the chance to live with all comfortable means in cities but on the other side they are people really in need  somewhere else.

ESPERANZA organizes these trips on behalf of its Corporate Social Responsibility activities.
