Reviews

A wonderful organisation doing really important work
"This is a wonderful organisation providing valuable skills-training to women in vulnerable socioeconomic situations. I spent 6 months volunteering with them, and assisted in a variety of tasks both in the sewing workshop and the general running of the NGO. Along the way I formed many strong relationships with the women and was always made to feel like an important and valued member of the team. I still keep up to date with the work of the organisation on social media and would love to be able to go back to visit one day. It was also a great opportunity to improve my Spanish and to get to know the city through the eyes of people who live there. It is an experience that I will always treasure and has sent me down the path that I am now following today. I would highly highly recommend volunteering with this organisation."- Fiona Gilligan
