I volunteered with Asociacion de Nuestros Ahijados (The God's Child Project) a year ago. This NGO provides education, healthcare , food and housing to people in need, and is also active in addressing the issue of human trafficking. The two things that impressed me most was 1) this NGO was born out of the efforts of a single individual over 20 years ago, and 2) the number of volunteers I met from all over the world (Asia, Europe and the Americas) who had responded to 'word-of-mouth' marketing. What I took away from my experience is that a one individual can make a difference in the lives of others if they focus first on what they can do rather than how big the needs are , and that people will respond to helping others if given the opportunity.
