A volunteer shares her experience……… “Working with this team also helped me gain my confidence and find my passion for my life.” 

Sarah is a 17 year old High School student living in the USA. It is very encouraging and heart-warming to see a young girl with a passionate heart, committed to serve vulnerable children living in Sri Lanka. At a short interview with Sarah, here is what she shared with us on her experience in volunteering with YGL.

YGL is a unique organization that works with vulnerable children. I chose this organization because I was given an opportunity to make a small difference in the lives of children. It was a great experience for me to have worked with the children. 
Working in YGL, helped me look back in my life and be grateful for all the things I have. I learned the true meaning of love and compassion from all the children and the women I worked with. They taught me important lessons in life that I will treasure always. The amazing memories I created with the YGL team and children are things I wouldn’t trade for anything. Working with this team also helped me gain my confidence and find my passion for my life. 
I 100% recommend volunteers to invest their time at YGL because it provides many great life experiences. It helps you gain new skills and knowledge. You also build many great relationships with the children and amazing friendships with the team.
YGL has great morals and values. It has amazing people and a friendly team you can work with. I am very thankful to YGL for letting me be a small part of this organization that makes a wonderful difference in many lives and a change in the communities in Sri Lanka.
