Embark on a journey with us that will impact your life and the lives of many others.

“It literally saved me. I was close to a burnout. After volunteering at Lewa, I came refreshed, with a completely new perspective and ready to get back to work. It should be mandatory.

-- Paloma, volunteer to the Lewa Children’s Home, November 2016
