Thank you Jannie for your kindness and respectful time at our Institution. Your professionalism and punctuality matter a lot! Keep it up.



The school is a very special place, from the first moment they made me feel at home, each and every one of the people who are part of this project are beautiful human beings. Very attentive, and dedicated to the project they carry out. A wonderful experience that I will never forget, the children are precious, adorable, I already miss everyone at school. If I could have, I would have stayed longer working together with everyone who is an exemplary group of people. I highly recommend it, it is a very enriching experience. Thank you very much for everything, I have you in my heart.

Jose is a perfectionist and always wanted to learn and practice new things in life. Very adjustable and cooperating to adapt to new situations in life. Very soft spoken and Kind Hearted. Keep it up.



There are no words to describe how wonderful this school is and the beautiful people in it. The school has an important connection with the environment which makes it unique, and it has a teaching methodology very different from the traditional with an incredible team that works with joy, love and humility. We've been almost 4 weeks contributing with all types of activities that we proposed. It is a school that enriches you, mobilizes feelings and doesn't leave you indifferent. Highly recommend PV for those who seek to generate changes, and along the way, enrich the soul.

Los ojos llenos de lágrimas de nuestros maestros cuando te fuiste de Poornodaya nos dicen cuánto te amaban la gerencia, el personal y los niños. No hay mejores palabras para explicar tu pasión por este proyecto. Siempre apreciaremos los momentos encantadores.



I have had the best time at the school from the team members, tasks, follower volunteers and of course the children! Having not had much experience with children before I was a bit hesitant but after a few weeks I formed such a great bond with them. They are such beautiful children who are able to flourish in a school that focuses on alternative learning through playing. Great place and would highly recommend.

On behalf of PV team we could say that the kids started to miss your art work classes. So everyone cam imagine the bond you made with our Tiny Tots. All the best



I would like to encourage every free minded person to take this opportunity and have an experience in this wonderful school with wonderful people and obviously those wonderful kids! I will always remember,!This is the meaningful experience and I couldn't imagine it be any better. Or i would go again? No doubt! All the best! Aiste and Stefano
