Hello everybody !!!

I am part of an organization already working with some foundations (ONG's) here in my city, Santiago de Cali (third city in Colombia). These Foundations have been developing various projects with children in disadvantage situation with great results and still needing support and staff who are willing to work with love, who enjoy working with children, who expect to get and bring a special experience and who would love to share and develop new ideas in order to improve the projects and children lifes.

Personally, I have been doing volunteer with them since time ago and gotten such a great experience!!
Now I would love to invite you to enjoy us.

I would like to know if you will come to volunteer with us, if no, why?? what will you expect from this experience? do you have any questions about it ?? I look foward to heard from you guys..... :D

Good luck
