I had a wonderful time the organization at the organization! The school and the Chrystal Centre have the most incredible, smiley, and engaging children, who taught me about their life and welcomed me with open arms! I'd like to especially thank Mim, who was a lovely, kind host, Arnold for helping me settle in at the centre and teaching me about the importance of the world that the Chrystal Centre, and Brian who transported me safely and easily to work and back every day! An unbelievable experience!

I would recommend everyone to experience Chrystal's Children center! They welcomed me with open arms! Getting the opportunity to meet all the children and learn all about the culture of the organization is something I will never forget!

This the organization-week experience was a great life experience even if it was unfortunately too short. I took everyone into my heart so quickly because the host family and everyone in the orphanage made me feel very welcome and always made sure that I felt comfortable. Special thanks goes to Mim, Arnold and Brian the driver, who always drove me safely to work with the Bodaboda. Working at the center with the children was the most beautiful and emotional thing I have ever experienced. The children are such wonderful souls and are so trusting and I thank every child for the smiles, the fun and the love!

My time with the organization was definitely memorable. I had a ton of fun helping out with various ongoing projects. I spent the first week at Chrystal Children's Center where I did basic household tasks, taught and played with the kids. The second week I worked on the farm where I took care of the animals. The overall the organization with David's family was lovely! One thing to note is that the volunteering fee was a little bit more than what was indicated on the worldpackers posting, but nonetheless, it was still a great experience!

I had an absolutely amazing experience volunteering in the organization! Out of all the places I've volunteered before, the organization truly felt like home to me. I wish I could have stayed longer because David, his family, and the program staff were incredibly kind and welcoming. They made sure I felt comfortable both at the house and at my assignment location. Teaching, nurturing, and loving the children was an absolute honor. I am grateful for the opportunity to have made a positive impact and create lasting memories in the organization.
