Antonia Sophia Waskowiak decided to volunteer in Kenya when she was 18 years and still attending High School. “I didn’t know, that this work camp would determine my life”, she says today, “during my first time in Kuria, Kenya, I got to learn the values of life and I had to realize that not every human being can access them, such as it should be. I could not sit down and watch how others are suppressed, mutilated, married as children and abused!”
