Crossing barriers of distance, culture, food and language, Kayla and Peter are a critical part of the Tamarind Tree community. As a student, Kayla visited Tamarind Tree and opted to come back to volunteer for a period of 6 months with her partner Peter in 2015. Believing that relationships must be cultivated over time,  they are both back to work and engage in meaningful interactions with the students. While Kayla is a full time teacher, Peter is an avid astronomer and has contributed to building a telescope for the school.
