What my time at BetterMe taught me?
That you can do so much even with limited resources. That feeling satisfied has nothing to do with wealth. That with a little attention and care you can greatly improve the life of a child. That children do not condemn, they simply accept. That people grow when they build trust. The importance of helping a child build self-esteem and self-confidence. The incredible healing power of a simple hug…
It taught me you can do so much if you work together. That a common goal forms an powerful bond. That family has little to do with genes and a lot to do with listening, compassion, attention and love. That you can communicate without speaking the same language. That home is not a place, but a feeling you carry with you in your heart.
And most importantly, it taught me that true wealth in life comes from the smile of a child!
Many thanks to BetterMe, the Korando Family and especially to my dearest Sandy for my incredible time in Kenya and for this wonderful experience!
