Meet Cammy! She is an amazing ILP Head Teacher who went to Romania in Summer of 2015. But that's not the only reason she is so awesome. The story of how she came to be a Head Teacher in Romania is pretty unique.
Cammy had been to Romania via a university study abroad in 2013, before the orphanage was 'adopted' by ILP and was added as one of the humanitarian programs ILP offered to volunteers. When she heard about the Romania program being discontinued at that university where she did her study abroad, she immediately thought of the kids she had helped at the orphanage and worried about who would take care of them (because that's just the kind of caring and great person she is!). This is where ILP comes in.

After the orphanage program was merged into the ILP program (Cammy was an important part of helping that merger go smoothly with her input and prior knowledge), Cammy started thinking about going back to Romania with ILP.

Cammy's Work In Romania
After a lot of hard work (before getting ready to leave for Romania she graduated college, did lots of fundraising for the orphanage, and gathered up tons of supplies) she went back to that European country she loved so much!
Cammy handled a TON of different aspects while she was head teacher and helped the students and her teachers to learn and grow. While at the orphanage she was able to help some of the orphans she had worked with before, as well as people at the hospital.
Because of her hard work and dedication to the orphanage program, Cammy was able to keep the ILP program going strong in the early years. Both times she went to Romania she touched so many lives and we know she made a difference at the orphanage and everywhere else she went! We're so happy she ILP team!
