The Path of Values
El Camino de Los Valores, for its part, is an initiative of the UP2U Project- Depends on You, which offers minors the possibility
in a situation of vulnerability to interact in another social environment that gives them new references and thus ensure that other principles are installed in them.
The group of pilgrims will cover a distance of
49 kilometerswhich goes from
Galdar to Tunte. They will divide it into two days, ending in this last location on Sunday, September 4.
In this edition a total of
123 youth, including some young people from Ukraine and Mali. This year the motto of this initiative will be "Walking for Peace", in order to vindicate the end of that
war conflict and others in the world.
In addition, in this edition there will be two
solidarity markets. The first of them will be located in
Tejedawhere the first stage ends on Saturday 3 and the second in
Tunte, where the tour concludes on Sunday 4.
Products will be sold in these markets
created by the minors themselves in their centers and foster homes. The profits collected will go to an association that works with the
ukrainian refugees and that will be chosen by lottery at the end of the path.
