I have been volunteering at The Raw Carrot in Paris since January of this year. It has been a very rewarding experience for me. The people that I have met are hard-working and respectful to one another. This is a working environment that not only provides an income but builds strength and confidence. It is my belief that we should do our best to give to our communities when we can and in doing that we not only answer a need but also learn about the wider world around us. The men and women I have met have offered friendship, shared personal stories....we laugh together, support each other, in general we listen to one another. It has been my pleasure to be part of this enterprise as well as an honour.
I look forward to returning again in the fall.
