„I have now been home again for two months. I have spent eventful and happy months in the Dominican Republic, where I worked and lived in a children’s home for boys aged between 9 and 17. The atmosphere in the children’s home is very family-like, the colleagues quickly accepted me. My room in the children’s home was clean and comfortable, like the whole children’s home, which was opened in 2011 near a beach and with a lovely garden.
My job was to help looking after the children – especially reading to them was lots of fun. My Spanish is not always perfect, so that the children eagerly corrected my mistakes.
It was a very special and intensive experience for me, which I do not want to miss in my life. I can recommend working in this project for every woman who speaks good Spanish and appreciates the South American joy of living. “
