New Volunteer Maret

We would like to introduce you to Maret, our future volunteer. Volunteer Maret"My name is Maret and I am 21-years old. I just graduated in Social Work, and I am coming from the Netherlands. During my studies I worked as an intern in a children’s home in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This was a dream coming true and has left behind a huge impression on me. Before I was even back in Holland, I already knew I wanted to go back to that beautiful continent called Africa after receiving my bachelor degree. I want to gain more work experience and really mean something for the local community, in particular the children, for a longer period of time. The "Happy Watoto Homes & School" stood out from all the others right away. I will stay in the home for up to 1 year, so I already started learning Suaheli. I am really looking forward to my time with the children."
