I started volunteering for this organization about seven months ago, and what I liked the most is that I immediately became part of the family, that I was submerged in the values of the organization which motivated me even more to help, since it allowed me to see the real difference that was being made on each children and family. I also loved how I grew as a person by understanding the we are all created equal, with the same dignity, value and that we need to live and work together if we want to see a real difference made on the lives of the people living in poverty.
