”I will definitely miss taking bucket showers, eating traditional food, playing find the word, exploring the place, talking Bisaya or Tagalog, seeing smiling places every day and having conversation with Kim-one of the local coordinators. This experience really opened my eyes and my heart, made me appreciate and tolerate different people, culture and way of living. I will definitely come back to the Philippines one day!”
