Meet the Dunes

It has always been something fascinating but at the same time extremely far away. Something to dream about. The dunes of the desert. To experience these majestic natural phenomena is a life changing experience.

We are all migrants

When we accidently crossed a national park in the southern Mauritania, I felt like a child. For the first time in my life I saw migrating birds in their winter habitat. It was deeply moving experience.

Zero dirham journey

On our way back to Europe after more than 3 months in Western Africa, Simona and I decided to hitch-hike from Agadir to Tangier. Just to squeeze the last bit of adventure of our precious time.

“I think I got used to unknown things…. and I now have the power to survive in any kind of situation, to figure out some kind of solution… I am kind of prepared for everything. But I miss my team!”

Alumni · Elo · DNS 2012

“People are different and have different boundaries. DNS helped me to realize that everybody has different limits, and we cannot ask everybody to do the same. This is what I use also a lot when I’m teaching.”

Alumni · Marta · DNS 2013

“DNS redefined the meaning of “teacher” for me.  A teacher is someone who inspires, challenges and cares, and I try to do that every day. I work at a specialised care home for people with psycho-social issues.”

Alumni · Nadezda · DNS 2013

“I want to be a good teacher and DNS taught me that it is only possible through a process of self-discovery and exploration. I followed that path since graduation and it takes me to places I could not have predicted.”
