    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    While the volunteers are here with us, they are exposed to the local lifestyle/way of life and traditions. We expect the volunteers to come with an open mind, an open heart and try to adapt to the way of life of the local people.
    We regard the volunteers as our family members more than as helpers regardless of where they come from, their races and beliefs.
