Review for Go! Malawi, Hebron, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The summer of my Junior year in high school was when I traveled to Malawi, Africa. I was blown away, shocked, and thrilled. Arriving at the orphanage was a feeling that can only be expressed by actually being there. The orphans had no cell phones, lap tops, or even more than a few shirts to call their own. What they did have was clean water, a roof over their head, and hot meals. For them, this was enough, and that is what truly surprised me- having so little yet being so happy. Always thinking of Malawi, I often wonder why more people can't realize that material objects aren't important, and that it is friendship and love that really add to happiness. Please help maintain this happiness within these orphans by contributing to The Little Field Home so that the meals, clothes, and water do not come to an end. You'll be surprised by how much even a little of your time can help.

Role:  Volunteer & Taught English, hauled water, played endless games outside with the children, and enjoyed every second of being in Malawi. It was truly an out of body experience. .
