'go with an open mind'
I would say, to anyone thinking about volunteering, that you will have a wonderful experience. You will find yourself in a place of much laughter, happiness, love and care – all mixed in with real poverty, hunger, deprivation. You will feel welcome; your presence will be appreciated out of all proportion to what you may think you are contributing, in a way which is very humbling; you will see and touch lives which will put our own comfortable and sophisticated existence in a very different perspective.
Go with an open mind; expect the unexpected; be prepared to take responsibility for what you do with this opportunity.
