It was a great experience volunteering at Heaven Hill Academy and stay at Shamser's house.
During my stay there were volunteers from different countries like Australia, Italy and France. I worked in the school library, had plenty of free time and the opportunity to go for walks. The view of the mountains is really beautiful, I was able to practice and improve my english, in addition to seeing up close the big difference that Shamser is making by providing a differentiated education to the children . I highly recommend this experience and all the learning it provides.
