Tenerife shows its diversity 

 

Before coming to Tenerife, the Belgium U-Turn project had only been carried out in Nicargua and Morocco.

However, these proved its success because 75% of the people who took part returned for more. As Sally explains in her story, it is aimed at those who are deaf, blind or paraplegic in different degrees and offers extreme sport challenges.

Vice-president of Tenerife Cabildo, Carlos Alonso said they had been delighted to support the trip and it once again highlighted what the island could offer for all abilities. Apart from walking, other members of the group tackled kayaking and a climb to Mount Teide.

U-Turn says that when the participants return home, they will be better able to face the everyday challenges of life, remembering what they had achieved here in Tenerife. You can keep in touch with the project through their Facebook page.
