A Volunteer's Story

A Volunteer Playing A Board Game With KidsWhen working with the children I soon realized that, though there are so-called 'poor' children, they have a great treasure within them, which they freely share and which enriches all those who come in touch with them.

Their treasure is their spontaneity, their ability to live in the present, forgetting about yesterday and not worrying about tomorrow, the talent to adjust so fast and easily to new circumstances, their great joy and happiness about small things and their pure yet detached affection.

All this lets them take things as they come and actually makes them very strong and independent. In fact, during the years I spent with them they were great teachers and their wise teachings and joy enriched my life.
