I volunteered at Namaste Children’s House in the summer of 2008. It was an incredible and life changing experience. The children are so bright and so full of life. I enjoyed every minute I had with them. I enjoyed the arts and crafts, the home made twister game—made out of sheets and markers, the walks to and from school and meal preparations with the children and staff. They taught me a lot about the kind of person I wanted to be in the future. I want to be as kind and as compassionate as these beautiful children. I want to give other children, locally and nationally, hope that there are people who care about them and will love them no matter their circumstances. The staff, at Namaste Children’s House, is welcoming and full of insights. They truly care for the children and help them to a better future. I hope to return to Namaste Children’s House soon!
