BTP 2016 summer volunteer recruitment

How can there be a better summer?

When the vast desert is accompanied by childish melody

When the mountain peak is surrounded by innocent laughter

When love is sown in the coconut groves

When hope is left on the field

While memory packed in the suitcase

Are you willing to be with us?

To light up the children’s eyes

In the shabby schoolhouse

Near the yellowed books and the broken pencils

We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once

So please take our invitation to a bright dance

This summer
