Hilo Rojo

Hilo Rojo opens it's arms to anybody who feels like they can help towards improving the lives of this beautiful children.
What is truely beautiful and humane is that many of the students have so little and yet give you everything. They may not have running water, a proper roof to sleep under, a stable family to support them, but they shower you in smiles, laughter, curiosity, and trust.
An important factor for any volunteer is the language and being able to communicate in Spanish because it will obviously be a barrier when wanting to connect with the children.
My 5 weeks at Hilo Rojo were just not enough and saying goodbye to the children, to the group of volunteers you spend you whole days with was really hard.

What would you improve about this program?
This organization and continuity of projects is to be improved. So many volunteers come and go and start beautiful projects with the children, the clases or even the whole school. However many of these projects get lost as soon as the volunteers say goodbye. To help the project keep moving forwards they really need to work on saving the information of past projects, being able to continue them or pass them on to the next group of volunteers.
