As always, the tías (aunts) at the kindergarten are doing a great job with the kids.  Our volunteers Sarah and Christoph are doing the best they can to help!  In Pinitos, another nearby project, Marianne and Kei are helping with the preparations before the children arrive next week.

 

Christoph, a marketing student from Austria, gets stuck in with the children from the kindergartenVolunteering with kids is an exhausting, but rewarding, experience. Sarah from Sweden has been working at the project for 3 weeks. At Pinitos, Marianne from France and Wilf from the UK are giving the kindergarten a much-needed makeover. Kei from the UK is in his element!
