“I absolutely loved volunteering for VFF. The workshops are well organised, fun, interactive and educational. But, the most rewarding part for me, is listening to the amazing feedback from the children and teachers, realising that you have made a positive impact and that maybe, in some small way, you have helped towards creating a better future for our planet and its inhabitants.”
