An authentic way to be a volunteer

Thanks to Involve, Ive been volunteering in a School where I really enjoyed helping children who are so sweet, it’s a beautiful human Experience. And this is authentic, you meet Malaysian people and exchange with them all the time.
The staff would bring me all around Taiping to visit the area. Taiping is not touristy but lovely: you can treck, walk around the really nice lake garden, go to the zoo or see hornbills and monkeys in the nature.
The Homestay is super nice, clean and cheap, there is a kitchen and otherwise food is super cheap everywhere around.
I really enjoyed my time here, and it’s mainly thanks to the association staff.
I recommend this place 💯
