From June to July 2018 I spent a month volunteering in the kindergarten in the Barracas neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. When I arrived in Argentina my experience of working with children was restricted to babysitting my younger cousins and my Spanish was rusty and in serious need of some work. However, a month working with the most adorable group of three year old kids taught me so much. I didn't just improve my Spanish imperatives (sit down, stop running, stop jumping...) during a short space of time I became more confident working with the children and developed a close bond with many of them.
Voluntario Global were extremely supportive through my time at the project, and we kept in close contact throughout.
