Review for Go! Malawi, Hebron, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I traveled to the Little Field Home Orphanage for the month of July in 2009 which was the summer prior to my senior year in high school. To this day, I still connect my everyday life to my experiences in Malawi. The children at the Home are some of the most remarkable young people I have ever met. Their enthusiasm and positivity towards learning is unmatched. I have gained a perspective and appreciation for my own life. I also realized the incredible impact people can have on each other through kindness, patience and understanding. Malawians are in an tragic position when it comes to education and health care and the FLFH works hard and effectively to help improve the quality of life and opportunity for the orphans and community members. The FLFH changed my life and changes lives every day in Malawi.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My everyday activities. I am a college student that knows that I am lucky to have the opportunity to attend college. I know that it is a privilege to have amenities such as electricity, plumbing and proper health care. One of the most powerful lessons learned in Malawi was the power of a smile. The orphans of Malawi have very little and yet they are some of the happiest children. That kind of appreciation for life is an invaluable lesson I carry with me thanks to the orphans of the Little Field Home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
