My name is Patrisha and this June I´m going to graduate from Highschool. But what then? Just jumping into the next school without any sort of break seems to quick. Like I´m missing out on something and I think that´s true.
Especially during the time between Highschool graduation and University one should see something other than the inside of a classroom. One should take the opportunity and explore the world, learn new languages, experience different cultures and talk to various people just to develop as a human being.
Volunta, an organisation of the DRK in Hessen, gives me that opportunity. With Volunta I´m going to do international youth voluntary work in a kindergarten in Balan, Romania from September 2018 til July 2018.
I´m going to assist the kindergarten teachers and help highschoolers to improve their English.
I want to help the children to see new perspectives because many families move away, looking for a better future.
The families, however, that can´t afford this, stay there and their children give up on hope before even trying something new.
Through my voluntary work, I hope to reach these children, motivate them and show them that they do have a chance. I am sure we can learn a lot from each other and maybe one believes in themselves when one comes in contact with a volunteer close to their age group.
But voluntary work costs a lot of money. Money for a place to stay, pocket money, food, seminars and insurance. About 300 Euros per month and that´s why I hope for the support of Donors.
Help me help those children. Children that are captives in their own mind without a thought of future. In another life maybe we would be on the other side. So, help me show these children the future they deserve and donate.
