I found Happy Caravan through social media, and was initially interested because of the emphasis on art and creativity. With a background in the arts, I have always had an interest in art therapy. I love that Happy Caravan not only provides an education for the children, but it also believes in the power of play and creativity. I wanted to make sure Happy Caravan was the right place for me, so I spent quite a lot of time researching. The more I found out about Happy Caravan the more it felt like the right place to volunteer. The children completely stole my heart, and I gained a lot of perspective and learned a lot. After the first few days, I knew there was no going back and Happy Caravan would always have a place in my heart!
Since returning home I have completely changed my career and decided to follow my passion of working with children. I owe Happy Caravan a big thank you!
