My experience at the project was unforgettable. It was very hard to say goodbye. I felt like I was at home at the project. I developed friendships with the staff and kids very quickly. The kids forever have my heart. The boys at the project carry a special spirit with them. They are so full of love, gratitude and happiness. The work was very easy for me. We spend a lot of time cooking but the staff make it fun. Helping the boys with their homework helped me a lot with my Spanish. The rooms were very comfortable. The animals on the farm added joy and laughter to my day. From the farm there is a spectacul

The host is a place like no other. I only spent three weeks at the orphanage, but cannot even begin to describe how difficult it was to say goodbye. It was beyond incredible to witness the love between all children and adults, whilst getting to become a temporary part of this beautiful family. This truly was a unique and eye opening, once in a lifetime experience that I will forever be carrying near and dear to my heart; just like the kids. Muchas gracias por todo, the host. Los extrañaré a todos!

Great experience!!

Excelente experiencia de voluntariado en el proyeto. En 15 días, pude vivir la experiencia de un verdadero centro de rehabilitación para niños sin padres por diversas razones. Los chicos son respetuosos, educados y disciplinados. Aquí pude jugar con ellos, ayudarles con los deberes, participar en su misa diaria así como prepararles la comida junto con los otros chicos voluntarios con los que establecí una buena relación de respeto y cooperación. Recomiendo a cualquiera que pruebe esta experiencia pero durante al menos 7 días.
