It was an amazing experience working at the kids center. The job was great, everyday I was able to make and even learn something different. I had the flexibility to choose the period I wanted to work, and I had the opportunity of getting to know all over Hannover while doing the activities.
The people there was very nice and warm, I felt welcomed and the food was incredible!
I recommend the Märchenkoffer center to everyone who wants to live and entirely new experience and wants to witness people who do an excellent work with children.
Thank you Alex and everyone at Märchenkoffer center!

Il was a real pleasure to me to have done my first volunteer experience abroad at Märchenkoffer. It is a super nice organisation caring about children's development and relationships between employees and volunteers. They are having a good organisation and at same time an open family atmosphere.
I loved having conversations and enjoyed a fun time with each of them. I had a nice time at my host's place and should mention the delicious food !
I will certainly go back to see them again.
I highly recommend this place ! Whatever your profile is you will always be welcome in this place.
