We tiled the floors in a new building, painted and cleaned up the kids playground area.
The volunteer coordinator did a great job of showing us around, Our time was maximized.
Our experience was outstanding. The albergue is such a warm and loving place where the kids are provided the tools for success and opportunity. The volunteer coordinator does a wonderful job of caring for the kids and ensuring that they learn and gain valuable skills. We were graciously welcomed by all those we encountered. Most of the kids had a good deal of confidence and they all showed tremendous respect. It was eye-opening for my kids to see how much of the world lives and the amount of responsibility some kids have.
What we liked best were the direct person to person experiences - we went to Hugo (student)'s house and to Carlota's sister's home. I really thought everything was great.- Jeff Roberts, March 2013
