What do our past volunteers say?

“I spent a month volunteering at Makimei Children’s Home in Kenya, an orphanage where 68 babies live. I am very grateful to have come to this place, I’ll take the best memories of the children and their smiling faces. I got a lot of appreciation from the women who run the orphanage and that’s priceless. No doubt a part of me will stay back in this place. What an unforgettable experience!” Coti Visintini, Orphanage Program Kenya


“I spent two unforgettable weeks in Cape Town, South Africa, volunteering with an elementary school through the Sports Development Program. It was all about helping kids with their schoolwork and teaching them sports, but it was so much more. The best part was seeing the kids’ faces light up during our sports sessions. It wasn’t just about keeping them busy but about teaching them important life skills through play. I learned a lot too, like how to be flexible and make the best out of what you have.” Demyan K, Sports Development Program South Africa
