Natasha from AustraliaMy time at the Father Ray foundation has been magical! It has been an honor to serve those less fortunate. One of the most appealing aspects of volunteering at FRF is the diversity of projects; this keeps the volunteers fully engaged and always experiencing something new. One of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of my time here has been teaching English to a class of 9 young disabled adults. It’s amazing how resourceful and creative teachers need to be in the classroom to ensure that linguistic and cultural differences do not stand in the way of learning … a dictionary and charades are the key to a successful class! The students are incredibly inspiring, I love watching them play sport in their free time. All the children from the various projects are beautiful, warm and loving – it’s a privilege to have them jump all over you! I think working at the School for the Blind has been one of the most eye opening (pardon the pun!) and heart warming experiences I have ever had. These children reach the very core of your soul with their touch and trust. I highly recommend volunteering at FRF, you will experience a side to yourself you never knew existed, and be changed for life.
