Here's how we're taking action in our community:
i went to Ecuador with my family and 23 other people to work at an orphanage called Casa de Fe. I played with my orphan friends and our team built a playground for them while we were there.
Here's how we got the idea:
I lived in Ecuador with my family for one year and we worked at the orphanage. My family thought it would be neat to bring other people to help at the orphanage and see what we did for our year.
These are the steps we took:
We had lots of garage sales, bake sales, lemonade stands and other fundraisers to raise money to build the playground.
Here are some of the results:
The kids who dont have families now have a playground to play on. I love my orphan friends!
These are the people who volunteered with me:
One of the coolest things that happened during my project was:
Seeing the kids play on the playground for the first time.
One of the most important things I learned was:
To always love others and give of your time to other people in need.
