Be prepared to have the most beautiful experience of love from the kids, they histories of life make u feel more grateful of everything in life! I will go back for sure! About the process since u apply just make sure about the fees, we paid more than a double that was in the app each person, the food is really different from USA and Brazil also make sure about transportation from the accommodation to the Centre where u work, we agreed with the host to pick up and drop off us every day because there is only taxi by moto which for me and my friend doesn't work! Btw the best experience of ou life

Words cannot describe emotions they need to be felt, The tears of compassion Experience taught me how to open and live through the heart. I realised what home really means. I definitely recommend it PLUR Žiga
