Today saw us reach a milestone in our Giveback100- DAY 30! It has been one hell of a ride so far and we cannot wait to continue giving back to these people who need it most!
Today we headed to a local charity in San Jose, Lifting Hands, who do amazing work for the under privileged of the local children there.
Lifting Hands is a place where children can go after school and get extra lessons and keep them off the streets. The streets of this area of San Jose is can be a rough place, and is not a place for children. The schools here finish at around 12pm, so Lifting Hands provide amazing opportunities for the children to learn have fun and try new things!
We were volunteering in the centre today, and by default we were drawn to the soccer field! This is only a small court with tiny goals, but the kids absolutely loved it and we managed to play until the sun had gone! It was great to coach and play football and basketball with some children who wouldn’t get the coaching if it wasn’t for volunteers giving their time.
Damo also spent some time in front of the map with some of the children who wanted to know where we were from. He spent most of this time explaining where Costa Rica was on the map, as well as teaching them about the continents and the UK being in another continent to the Americas. It is great that they have access to this map, hopefully they continue to stay enthusiastic about the geography of the world and maybe they will be inspired by what we are doing travelling so far away from home to help people and see the world!
Thanks to Lifting Hands for allowing us to giveback to them and the children there. Big shout out to all the people who work there and volunteer their time to help these children!
If anyone has any ideas on how we can give back and volunteer in different ways then please get in touch with us on Social Media as we want to help as many communities as possible and inspire many more people to GIVEBACK!!!
