Working with the kids at the Ludoteca is such a pleasure, and everyday brings a new adventure!

Hola from Playa del Carmen, Mexico! I’ve been volunteering here with the child care project for the past two weeks and I can honestly say that it has been such a rewarding experience thus far. Working with the kids at the Ludoteca is such a pleasure, and everyday brings a new adventure! Just yesterday we did an art project with the kids…paper mâché bottles turned into maracas….messy but so fun! The Ludoteca is a place run by the “Save the Children Foundation” here in Playa del Carmen. Kids come to the Ludoteca during the day to do homework, play, and learn new things. We have different topics of interest each week…this week’s topic was “climate change”. The kids really seemed to enjoy it, as we put together a presentation and a fun little activity for them to participate in. The children are just incredibly sweet and fun to be with–always coming in with a smile and leaving with hugs and kisses! It’s such a good feeling knowing that we are helping these kids express their talents in a safe and protected environment.

I have done other GVI programs in the past and have loved them all! It’s always so much fun volunteering for something you are passionate about. But with that comes the joy of meeting new people! I am currently living in a house of 13 other people…it’s amazing! All from different countries, from different walks of life with very different perspectives! But while we are all here in Playa del Carmen we share one experience….and we are definitely making the most of it! I’m having the time of my life here in Mexico, and I have to thank GVI for that!

Peace and love,
Daisy Kaur
