After going on this C2C project, the kids there taught me how to appreciate the simplicities in life and also not to take anything we have here in Singapore for granted.
This project have been very meaningful and enriching where I was privileged to experience the things that I would not be able to in Singapore.

C2C gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in the simple yet joyful life in Bohol.
In Bohol, the children at San Isidro Elementary School reminded me not to forget this. I remember how they picked up the wheel tyre and started to run around playing with it.
It reminds me that it's possible to be happy with the simple things in life and this really warmed my heart.

I have always love helping out those who needs it, be it from a non-profit organisation or my own family members and friends. It brings me warmth in seeing their smiles as they appreciate the help and time I have given to them.
Being part of this C2C project allows me to understand how organising a volunteer event works. I realised that it is not always an easy feat organising events for beneficiaries. However, seeing their smiles and enjoying their time made it all worth it, and I think that is what matters the most.

"Never have that much of nasi goreng ayam and juice avocado in a week, and not to forget the unique low tables and chairs."

"The trip has given most of the volunteers a "new" lease of life. Looking at the plight of Acehese, and how strongly they dealt with it, it belittles me as a typical Singaporean"
Ah Seng (Kian Seng)

************************************************************************

Through the trip, it had been an enriching experience and motivated me to contribute as and when as one or team to make it a better place to live in.

************************************************************************

There are certain things that can't be bought with money, memories of C2C trips are one of them. The memories I've gain during the expedition to Aceh is one of the best that I can ever ask for and it's one thing that will definitely bring a smile to my face when I'm old......

"It is more blessed to give than to receive--
That is the opportunity to do more and I thought I have refreshed others but as it turned out I, myself, was refreshed by them...... Not only to give love but also able to receive love too makes me a better earth-being."

The spirit of volunteering is not restricted by age, race, religion or distance; it is the start to building new relationships between like-minded people.

"C2C at Aceh brings back memories of lazing in the comfy chair and enjoying juice apolkat under the starry sky after a day of mural painting or teaching the Acehnese children."

"... the warmth these kids exude drove my self-consciousness away, and made me realise befriending was easy, sincerity was the key."

************************************************************************

The wonderful aspect of this project is the chances to work with diversified group. Working with them makes me think out of the box, accept different working styles and try new things and learn their different set of values.

I seldom have the chance to do Singapore songs and dances and that particular night did stir up my feelings towards Singapore. They made me love Singapore better and made me proud of my country.

"What made all sweats even more worthwhile was the kids' smiling and telling you that everything you do is great. We may not speak the same language but a hug or a thumbs-up really perks our days.

Happiness can be that simple and we don't need big/expensive stuffs to make us happy. This is something which I may know before the trip but I feel it strongly now after the trip."
Meichia

************************************************************************

Like my previous expedition trip, it has always evoked a self-discovery of how fortunate I am in, and not taking things around for granted. Thus, nothing beats better than placing oneself to experience the life around and view the world with an open eye.

************************************************************************

"It got me to realize how we have been neglecting the learning process of anything that we've been doing. It is probably because we were constantly under pressure to produce results and forced to be under the impression that only the outcome matters in the society. This trip had been one of the rare chances I was able to fully enjoy the process of doing things without having to worry too much about the outcome."
