Back With Unforgettable Summer in China!

13 August,¬†after 30 days of working and travelling, our volunteers’ exciting and enlightening China trip has to come to the end. There have been many late nights and¬†weeping goodbyes, the¬†volunteers¬†are now looking quiet and¬†exhausted. Or maybe they just don’t want to leave China… I know some of them have decided to come back next year when they finish ¬†university.

During this trip, the volunteers contributed a great deal of their knowledge and cultural background to not only the children, but also the town. They were so popular among the students, the Chinese staff, parents and friends. Wherever they went, the crowd took photos of them.  Every day people queued to invite them for dinner- literally!
