"The children gave me inspiration and made me see life in a different way"

I had a great time at the orphanage and the children were fantastic. Before I went to Ghana I expected to find sad and miserable children but instead I found happy children that were playing, singing and laughing. The owners of the orphanage were nice and welcomed me in a good way. They didn’t explain much how I would do things like get the children ready in the morning and where all things had their place. If I needed something I always had to ask  for it, maybe they should think about improving that?

The thing that the children needed the most was love and of the more practical things they needed food, soap, pencils and books. I would absolutely recommended other to go here as a volunteer because it’s an amazing  experience and It will give you much more than you might expect. My two weeks went fast but the memories will never disappear. I came there to give the children love but they gave me so much more back.
