I had joined TWG for a year back when I was 17 as part of my SOK project. Little did I know I would find myself back here after Uni and I've now been participating for 4 or 5 years. It has been a great experience and the kids put a smile on my face every week. I've also learnt from the other volunteers especially when it comes to dedication and patience :)

I joined the Third World Group in 2009, after I helped in the Summer Camp which the Missionaries of Charity organise in Malta for children with difficult family and social backgrounds. I was attracted to this group by their great sense of community, simplicity and great initiatives to help or be the voice of those suffering from injustices, such as poverty and racism. I have long desired to work with the poor and those from difficult backgrounds, and volunteering in the Third World Group made this possible for me. I came to know about it through my sister and her husband who were already members, and when they shared about their experiences in the group, I could sense the positive and enthusiastic spirit of the group. Being with the children, organising sessions for them and seeing their enjoyment and appreciation when attending the sessions gave me so much joy. I met many difficult situations in the families we worked with, and this made me much more aware of difficult realities, helped me to be more appreciative of what I have and grow in the desire to give all I can to those in need. Being part of the community of the volunteers was also a great experience. They gave me a sense of belonging, helped me to believe more in myself and discover new gifts I have. I learned a lot from each one of them and working together for the good of others was what could help me continue to do what I can to those in need.

My first voluntary experience with Third World Group was in Egypt during the summer of 2000. For three weeks we organised activities with children in Moquattam, a marginalised district within Cairo. During our time there I worked and shared many experiences with the poorest children and their families in that city. After that I had the opportunity to travel with Third World Group to Italy and Albania, wherein our group worked with children from deprived areas.

Between 2002 and 2004 I carried out a European Voluntary Service project in Belgium through Third World Group.

I have been volunteering with Third World Group for the past four years. What keeps me going is the dedication of the volunteers and the smiles of the children during the sessions-that's the indicator that I'm making a difference through the time and effort that I give.

"I started my volunteering experience when I was around 14 years old, with other organisations. One Summer, when I was around 16 years old, my friend suggested to go volunteer with an organisation which worked with children. Having nothing better to do at the time, I decided to accompany her to the first of many sessions of Third World Group. Still quite immature at the time, I was probably regarded as very childish and, sometimes, rather annoying, as I'm quite sure my friend and I disrupted a number of sessions with our continous laughter. However, I never felt excluded from the group and always felt accepted as part of the community. Spending time with other volunteers, and also the children, helped me build a strong character, learn how to take decisions and how to lead, how to express my opinion, and how to be positive in life. Surprisingly enough, it also helped me cope with personal problems in my life.
Volunteering in this organisation gave me experience and stamina which would have been difficult to achieve from elsewhere. It shaped me into the person I am today, and I wouldn't hesitate to do the same all over again. A heartfelt thanks goes to all those people who were, and to those who still are, part of my life because of TWG"
