Volunteer Testimonials

“Going to Bolivia to work with Smiles Forever is an experience that I will never forget. The work that is done and the constant struggle that these women fight to overcome are astonishing. I arrived in Bolivia not very aware of the work that was ahead. Seeing how Sandy and her team uplifted the whole team was beautiful. The women smiled and seem proud. There were times that brought many tears, but in a good way, because I knew that these girls and their children would be ok with the help that was being given.

I left Bolivia to head back to finish up my Human Development degree at Washington State University. I made a proposal to one of my classes to collect toothpaste, toothbrushes, and any other toiletries that may be needed. The proposal was successful and I plan to go back to Bolivia and continue with the great work that is happening to build a future for these beautiful women.”
