I am a high school student that volunteers often but on a small scale with the Red Cross. I was able to come here from Germany to help with the construction project at an orphanage. The staff were very nice and welcoming. I helped the orphanage level their front yard. We build a wall to help stop flooding and I painted the entrance room and some of the stairwell.

What was most difficult thing you experienced while in the program?

The heat and the rain. The heat here was killer for me but that could just be that I am not used to it. I came during the Manson season and it rained hard at some point of the day every day. I got used to wet and sweating.

Any tips for future volunteers….(clothing, travel information, packing, sightseeing, donations)

Bring the coldest clothes (temp) and pack a pair of sandal. Bring spray might just save your life on trip away from the homestay. Get your self some tagging skills; shopping area you can haggle for just about everything.
