The volunteer was an amazing experience! When I got there I realized all the kids were just willing for love and attention. Also, the girls don’t have the same opportunities as the boys, so I had the insight to create a new project: Girls empowering. I truly believe that this project is gonna do well as it’s already making positive things in there lives.
William and his family made me feel like a member, I really love than..if you have any questions about anything can keep in touch with me!
