Review Volunteer Olivia Wilson in Belize at the Orphanage program
My Favorite Memory: I love playing with the kids after school. Especially the day I brought chalk and bubbles to play with them.
I was surprised that…. Many of the children would bond to you so quickly.
The most difficult thing I experienced was….. Becoming accustomed to the heat in the middle of the day.
My best received lesson….. How to be firm with the kids, yet gentle.
Tip for future volunteers…..
(Clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
Bring clothes for all weather the weather change every day, bring rain poncho.
Personal paragraph (Testimonial):
Belize was an incredible experience filled with hard work and laughter and a lots of hearts.
