Volunteer Name: Emily Roca
Project Location: Belize
Program Dates: May 5 – 27, 2015
Volunteered at: Orphanage
My Favorite Memory:
Connecting and growing so close with the kids.
I was surprised that….
All 44 kids referred to each other as their brothers and sisters, it is very heart warming
The most difficult thing I experienced was…..
Realizing some of these children have very painful past.
My best received lesson…..
No matter what, love and compassion is always the best choice.
Tip for future volunteers…..
Visit Caye Caulker, Old Belize and Manatee lookout in the neighborhood.
Personal paragraph (Testimonial):
Overall, I really enjoyed my volunteer experience. Belize is beautiful the children and people I’ll never forget.
