The Heart of the building project | A wonderful donation from Jonathan Verpent   (published in South Africa)

February 24, 2014 by   Comments(0)

Throughout the many times I have spent at the building project: assisting the building project manager, learning new skills and meeting new inspiring people; I am still overwhelmed and yet not so surprised about the inspiring volunteers that walk into that building site and how they build people’s  lives not only physically, but emotionally too. The building volunteers continue to carry on the legacy of the building projects unwritten motto of: building children’s futures not only by cementing the walls but by emotionally building a positive attitude and by bringing hope and love in their lives.

Less than a year ago I had been most fortunate to be associated with a remarkable volunteer Jonathan Verpent who donated again funds for food which would be distributed to the kids at the crèche on the building site. This had been the highlight of two weeks spent at the adventures of the building project. Receiving heart-warming smiles from the children in those three days spent giving out food and drinks was the most incredible feeling that reminded me of the true happenings in the heart of the building project.

My exciting two weeks had also been interrupted by scorching summer days, but also filled with the exciting atmosphere of the four amazing volunteers: Niels van der Schans, Annina Boerner, Amandine Barre and Casper van Gurp at the building project. Throughout the time spent we had not only been co-workers but have developed more of family-hood which I find happens to most building volunteers. All in all it was a marvellous two weeks
