Testimonial from volunteer Alexandra!
Category : Volunteer Testimonial
my name is Alexandra and my hometown is Nuremberg in Germany. I´ve been at the Love Orphanage in March 2013. I still hardly can´t believe, how wonderful it was! Thank you so much Krishna, for giving me this amazing chance!
Before I arrived, I was a little bit excited how my daily life would be there and if the children would like me. As it tourned out, there was absolutely no reason to worry. The children and the whole team, consisting of Krishna, his wife, the two housemothers Sanjita and Absara and the teacher Santos, welcomed me with open arms and a bright smile! So it was very easy for me to acclimate. My daily routine was as follows: After a delicious breakfast, prepared by Krishnas lovely wife Parvati, I walked to the orphanage to bring the children to school at ten o´clock. Then I had some free time until 15 o´clock, when I picked up the children from school. After a snack at the orphanage, I learned with the children and helped them with their homework. Then we played, danced or drew until dinner, which I had together with the children. Sanjita is a really great cook! The work with the children is so much fun and really rewarding, I miss them all very much. I just can recommend everybody, who is thinking about volunteering in Nepal, to go there! Pokhara is a beautiful city, surrounded by spectacular nature and there are lots of opportunities to get to know Nepali culture and people. Everyone tried to enable me as many great experiences as possible. But the most amazing thing of all was to meet these cute and adorable children and the whole Love Orphanage team. I am so deeply thankful! It was an experience I will never forget in my whole life and I hope very much I will return one day. If you have any questions, I would be glad to help!
In Peace and Love,
