My Favorite Memory:
It’s hard to choose one specific memory, as there have been lots of really great moments with the children. However, one of my favorite days was when we took the boys out for a trip. We went to a huge house on the mountainside, which had a playground, a trampoline and a swimming pool. We spent the whole day playing in the water and I helped to teach some of the older boys to swim. It was a really fun day and it was great to see how much they enjoyed themselves.
I was surprised that:
The project was so big. The actual orphanage was a lot bigger than I had imagined with lots of different rooms for the different age groups. I was also surprised that there were no other volunteers at the projects when I was there. (ABV: you didn’t go in the busy season).
