Last week the social workers and the Young Ambassadors visited the little community of Takouka to talk about the disadvantages of orphanages. Two former orphans and some parents reported about their personal experience with institutional care for children. The first thing we noticed when we arrived in Takouka was that the area around the village was really neat. You could hardly see rubber or waste in general as other villages are characterised with. Community members told us about how an NGO helped their sanitisation by educating and supporting them in the construction of latrines.
The community was really thankful and curious to get information about the volunteer-business and had many questions for the YAP team.
