Volunteer Name: Travis Ingrodi
Project Location: Belize
Program Dates: July 26 – August 1, 2015
Volunteered at: orphanage
My Favorite Memory: Shoring time with the kids. Kylon and Kelsey were a lot of fun.
I was surprised that…. How organized and disciplined the children are!
The most difficult thing I experienced was….. The heat
My best received lesson….. The orphanage is a very special and unique place that has given me a better appreciation and perspective of life!
Tip for future volunteers…..
Remain flexible, bring bug spray and drink lots of water
Personal paragraph (Testimonial):
The older boys were wonderful as well. Jaden, Delroy and Dean were great to spend time with and will grow up to be strong men!
