My experience in Latvia: My over-all experience in Latvia thus far is very good. The work we as volunteers provide together with the Liepaja Jaunie Vanagi organisation is not only great fun but also very educational. During this project I’ve learnt a lot about dealing with children, working in a organisation and living in a foreign country. This is not always easy but the progress and results you get are worth it. Living in a foreign country also includes learning about another culture and language which is a very valuable experience. The Latvian people are a bit closed at first but very nice when you get to know them and show interest in their country. During this stay I have also learnt more about myself and what I strive for in life, therefore this project is an experience that is not only fun but also extremely valuable for yourself. But no matter what, the best part of this all is putting a smile on the faces of the children and people you work with!
