Great experience as volonteer in the young mothers program

The young mothers program is an excellent local initiative, for which Kaya helps in finding volunteers. The girls are well taken care of and shown how to become independent in their future life, go to school and learn a profession, learn how to take care of their children. As volunteers, a lot of time can be spent taking care of the children, but also teaching the mothers all kind of activities, dependent on the skills of the volunteers. I taught them english, and I taught one the mothers to play the flute. It was very rewarding, as the mothers are very eager to learn new things. And the children are adorable. A wonderful experience overall, with a very enriching contact with the mothers!
