TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA FOR COLLOMA

Welcome to the page of my new challenge: walking to Santiago de Compostela for the benefit of Colloma. This is one of the boarding schools created in 2001 by my brother, Robert Crespin, in Bolivia. It is located at 3335 metres altitude, in the middle of nowhere, and is surrounded by mountains. Currently it is in jeopardy due to lack of funding.

 

In 2017, I left for 3 months to secure the electrical installation of all the boarding schools of K'anchay, the NGO in charge of them. Colloma is one of them. What struck me particularly was both their hospitality and their willingness to move forward.

 

Back in Belgium, the idea of helping this boarding school never left me. The need to do more for this cause remained pervasive.

 

A new journey is beginning on the 3rd of September 2019, from Vezelay in Burgundy, to Santiago de Compostela. 1840 km over a period of two and a half months.

 

I will need to face the fatigue of my body and mind, kilometre after kilometre, endure the whims of the weather and make every ray of Sun energy in this crazy adventure.

 

Don't wait any longer, come on the road with me! If you would like to support this project, each sponsored kilometre will become a stone for the boarding school.

 

More than fifty children depend on me, so feel free to help me help!

 

In advance, thanks a million!

Jean
