Work History

Home Of Hope

Engaged in women empowerment and child development. Our role was to act as a support system for the residents. Helped with the day-to-day running of the institution. Was involved in setting up a tea party and interacting with the residents . Also visited the newly established children's ward, where we were successful in implementing game strategies to motivate the children, creating a fun and challenging environment. It was a life changing experience meeting these wonderful children and women and witnessing first hand what life is like in a culture different from my own.
