Volunteers

Aidan Flynn – Review

Why did you want to volunteer?

To try to make a difference in a child’s life. To see if I could help someone less fortunate even if in a small way.

Do you feel you made a difference, how?

Yes, by helping the boys to read and write we were able to help in some part in improving their future.

What did you do for fun?

We played games, played cricket outside after classes.

When was your most enjoyable experience, do you have an interesting story?

Playing cricket with the boys – they didn’t want to stop.

Would you considering going again or perhaps to another project with Original Volunteers?

Yes but I would like to try some other projects, Cambodia and Thailand appeals to me.

What would you say/recommend to a friend who was interested in volunteering?

Just have a go and see what happens, you will be surprised how easy it is and everyone is so friendly.

What items would you suggest future volunteers pack?

Clothes for summer and spring – I was there in the winter and was still really warm.

How much money would you suggest you take per week?

£50 is enough for all your basics.

Could you offer any tips to future volunteers?

Just have a go! It’s really not that hard and you’l be a better person for it afterwards!
