With "weltwärts" and ipf to Bolivia
Many curious young people want to get to know the world and engage socially at the same time. There are varied offers from very different organizations, which like to integrate the voluntary helpers into their existing projects. Often volunteers are expected to pay a part of the costs themselves. This is usually only possible with sponsors.
In the recent months, ipf electronic has financially supported the foreign assignment of Nele Rauen in Bolivia. Through the organization "Volunta" Nele helped in the fourth grade of a village school to relieve the teacher and to enable the 38 students a better learning. When working with the children of the pre-school class, the focus was more on learning games, numbers and letters and getting used to the new environment. In Bolivia, there is a shortage of teachers in many schools that thus can be reduced.
Nele also liked working with the initiative "OneDollarGlasses". The organization's goal is to provide people around the world who cannot afford glasses with an affordable alternative. Nele helped with eye tests and adaptation of the glasses. A great experience to see how happy these people became with their new visual aids.
Meanwhile, Nele is back in Germany with many new experiences. We wish her all the best for her future life.
