At the very heart of our charity's success are the amazing volunteers from around the world who work every single day to make sure the children in our programs receive the best care possible. While LWB has a small number of paid staff to oversee charity operations, the majority of our programs are volunteer run. Each year over 150 volunteers give their time and their hearts to help children in need, monitoring children’s progress, writing lesson plans, updating sponsors, and so much more.
Volunteering with LWB is like being part of a close-knit family — together we celebrate each triumph, mourn each loss, and strive to do better every day. I feel personally connected to the children we help, though they are half a world away.
– Yolanda, LWB volunteer
Their compassion and commitment to the children inspire us daily.
