Trent College DofE complete their Bronze award!

During these four girls time volunteering for Operation Orphan as part of their Bronze DofE award they completed a broad range of activities in several of our projects.

Each week these girls came with a smile on their face and got stuck into each task we had for them.

Our DofE students allowed us to expand the capacity of our Keep A Child Warm project as we were able to distribute warm clothing to four homes in Hungary. Without these hard working girls the process would have been a much slower one.

Committing to 12 weeks of volunteering is a huge undertaking especially on top of already busy schedules but this team were dedicated and in return gained a valuable insight into the running of Operation Orphan.


‘I have really enjoyed my time here and have completed a range of things from cutting wrapping paper to sorting clothes. Not only that but I believe the organisation stands for something very inspiring. Being able to help children who can’t afford simple necessities is something I am proud to say I helped with’.


‘I had previously been to Operation Orphan with school and really enjoyed it. It is very fun and eye-opening and everything you do goes to a good cause’.


‘I have learnt not to take things for granted. It has been an eye-opening experience that will stick with me forever and has motivated me to keep volunteering at places who help people less fortunate’.


‘The pictures in the office remind me weekly of the help that I am able to give and its amazing that I can make an impact from so many miles away. The staff are so friendly and makes it an easy process!’.
