Géraldine: “I loved working with the children, it was magical and it brought me a lot more than I had hoped to imagine.”
My name is Geraldine, I am 18 years old and I volunteered for 4 months with the organization Honduras Child Alliance in Honduras.
Why did you choose HCA?
I chose this organization for two reasons. First of all because she works a lot with the children by giving them English lessons and balanced snacks. In addition to the children, English classes are also available for adults. Also, I wanted to improve my level of Spanish, Honduras being a country where Spanish is spoken, it was perfect!
How was my mission?
At no time did I regret going on a mission to HCA. As soon as I arrived there, I felt completely at ease! I loved working with the children, it was magical and it brought me a lot more than I had hoped to imagine. I also realized that I was quite good at teaching, I really enjoyed passing on knowledge and helping others. I was also able to improve my level of Spanish and English enormously. As you can see, I learned a lot during the four months of volunteering.
Finally, I chose to leave with the association AIME, which put me in touch with the Honduras Child Alliance. I chose AIME because it was the first time I was going on a humanitarian trip, so I needed to be well accompanied and not be alone in this adventure.
