Lara's experience in Kenya: "The best trip I've ever taken in my life"
It has been a wonderful experienceWithout a doubt, the best trip I've ever taken in my life. It has been very enriching and has helped me to understand, even more, the situation in which a large part of the Kenyan population lives.

The day to day was calm, as they say there, pole pole, we set up and conditioned the room for the volunteers, we put the bunk beds and made wooden coat racks.
By I went to class tomorrow, since the orphanage had also been enabled as a school. In the evenings, from 4:00 p.m. I would help the children to do their homework and then we would go for a walk in the countryside and do activities, outdoor games, we made necklaces, bracelets, rings, a paper flower workshop, puzzles, we danced, we colored….
On weekends we invented many activities to keep them entertained all day.
It's going to sound like a cliché, but what I liked the most and made me feel happy was giving them all my care and love every day.
I have shared smiles of complicity in difficult moments, I have been able to listen and understand them, I have eaten them with kisses and hugs, all of this being reciprocal.
