Huanchaco al Rescate

Trujillo, Peru
Great experience
louise
I was here for one month and had a great experience. Since I love languages this was a perfect project for me. The children really appreciate the classes and without this project they wouldn´t get to know any English. They also give you so much love and encouragement that you really feel that you make a difference.
While not working the director of the organisation takes you to see a lot of thing in Trujillo and the surrounding area.

SHAC Smiling Hearts

Siem Reap, Cambodia
Smiling Hearts - Always Smiling
Jeff Zinger
Volunteering at Smiling Hearts has been an amazing experience in so many ways. I find it incredible that the school is able to operate in the way it does through donations alone while supporting so many people along the way. From the children and their parents to the villages surrounding, it really is one big family. Learning English is a vital route to a better future for these kids and in a difficult Khmer education system it can also provide the necessary support that a child is lacking from elsewhere. The fact that the founder and director Aly has built the school from the ground up in her own back garden really drives home her dedication to the project. Longer term volunteers and regular donations are the key here so that it remains such an important and happy place for years to come!

PHILDAN MEMORIAL COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATION

KISUMU, Kenya
PHILDAN MEMORIAL COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATION IS THE PLACE TO BE
James Oketa
My name is James Oketa, I volunteered for Phildan Memorial Community Based Organization for a period two months. During that period I was actively involved in two projects; Sports and Income generating Activities for women.
The main sporting activity that I was involved in was football, the kids are incredible and we had managed to come up with an under 12 soccer team called the “Blues” a name given from the color of the sporting kit that we wore. These kids are inspiring and not to mention the immense talent that they possess. With a little help, to overcome a few challenges here and there, they have a bright future. This kids face an array of short falls including, lack of a playing ground, sporting kits, lack sufficient food to eat, stationary, lack sufficient infrastructure ( classrooms, latrines, electricity, teachers staffroom). They also do not have enough teaching staff just to mention but a few.
Income generating activities has always been my area of liking and I felt much helpful working with women, brainstorming on different projects that could help them generate income. The families are hardworking only for lack of enough capital which constantly hindered progress in most of the endeavors that we engaged in.
I would gladly inform all of you wishing to volunteer with Phildan Memorial Community Based Organization that it’s a place that needs your help and it’s the place you should be.
Any little resource towards this organization will have a ripple effect in the entire community
Together lets touch lives
For any inquiries please do not hesitate to write to me
