I really loved my volunteering experience at this school! They are doing a great job to support empoverished children, offering all they have, in order to provide the kids with necessary skills that will help them to become the person they want to be ...
I very easily became part of their team and the whole school staff as well as William & his family are so much fun, welcoming and helpful, no matter what you need.

This experience was definitely life changing, there's no other way to describe it.
I truly recommend this project & hope to have the opportunity to come back soon ♡
