A world aware provides volunteers for our children's home in South Africa. They also raise awareness of our needs to individuals who are able to help us. This year they counseled and encouraged some of our volunteers and made their experience even greater than it would have been.

We run a children's home in South Africa. AWA is frequently bringing us volunteers to help with our work. Most come for one day, but some stay as long as three months. It is a great blessing to be the recipient of this organization. They also bring school supplies, balls, clothes and numerous other helpful items. Even invite the children to go on outings, such as picnics and swimming pool outings.

We run a children's home in South Africa. A world Aware provides volunteers to help us with different projects. The head of AWA is a good friend. In addition to the volunteers he brings us, he also invites the children to come visit at his home. We have cookouts, playtime and use his pool. The children love to visit Michael.

A world aware came to our small town in South Africa. They provided a free business class to underprivileged youth and young adults. Our organization also attended, and helped the class to do their work project, which entitled them to attend the second part of the business class. The class learned how to build tower gardens for the poor, and then built one without assistance. They were surprised to see the differences in their projects, when they did not have someone overseeing their work. They learned valuable lessons in dealing with customers, co-workers, and employees, as it pertained with the project they worked on, and could see how those lessons could be put to use in the real world.
