Volunteer testimonial

Dear Donors, 

For this report we asked teaching volunteer, Sandra, to give us a testimonial about her time at the Xantus Janos school and the after schools where she worked. She kindly agreed and we thank her for her kind words.

I am completing my  experience here in Romania as a volunteer from USA. I am leaving knowing that the work Care 2 Travel is doing is making a profound difference in the lives of the children they are so devoted to serving. The reception by Administrators and teachers at the work sites speaks to the community support the organization has garnered. 
When arriving at the different schools and after school programs the children were eager to play and interact and practice English. They consciously chose to practice English and participate in the learning activities we brought. 
Their eyes lit up and you could see sparks of curiosity and motivation, even when I had no knowledge of Hungarian. 
The Care 2 Travel team build experiences that foster global friendships and purpose. The work being done is phenomenal and transformational for the students, community, and volunteers. 
I highly recommend this program to others and walk away knowing that I made a difference and am better as a person for having had the opportunity to experience it.
