Volunteering in Jamaica- Projects Abroad

In January I was blessed to be able to spend two short weeks of my time in Mandeville. This opportunity was very rewarding and if I could I would of stayed longer! I spent my time volunteering in a local orphanage and seeing the smiles on the children's faces every morning made me realize how truly fortunate I am here in Canada. I would do it all again in a heartbeat and hopefully I will have the opportunity again some day!

    Dear Jacqueline. I am sure you had a strong impact in the lives of the children you helped, even if you were just in Jamaica for a short while. Thanks for sharing!

A volunteer for a month

My name is Emma, and i recently spent a month volunteering in Jamaica through projects abroad. I was doing their care project, and get placed in an orphanage. It was one of the best experiences i could ever ask for. I got to help children who needed it along with making amazing lifelong friendships with other volunteers. Along with that, i got to be submerged into a totally different culture which made me grow so much as a person and have a new understanding of my own life.
