words can’t describe the experience we had out in the small community of San Patrignano and the amazing people we were able to meet and connect with.
From the people who live at San Pa to the mind blowing organizations we met, UNITY and I personally took so much away from this incredible week in Italy.
Getting to meet organizations from Afghanistan (Skateistan), Uganda (Break dance Project Uganda), Portugal (Transformers), Germany (Street University), Brazil, Columbia, Rome and so many more we were able to share our stories, our tears and our smiles all week long. It was a truly beautiful experience.
This video gives you an idea of the energy of this amazing group of people:
This was all because we were invited by San Patrignano to come to their WeFree drug prevention conference in Rimini, Italy. This group is a world leader in drug prevention and drug rehabilitation. Their practices are copies and talked about around the world as over 1000 people live in their community and are working together to kick drugs.
Also, UNITY Charity was honoured to win the showcase competition against 12 other groups from around the world for the SECOND year in a row! Making UNITY Charity the undefeated WeFree Heros!!! It was an incredible experience doing our anti-drug themed performances on stage in front of over 2000 students from across Italy. A truly inspiring week.
Below are the 3 showcases that tell the anti-drug story we presented at this year’s conference on WeFree day 2011:
Can’t forget the street cyphers in Bologna, Italy 🙂
