What do our past volunteers say?

“The local coordinators were amazing, completely dedicated to what they do. The work was fulfilling, varied, and flexible. I learned a lot, through the voluntary projects, our conversations with the local coordinator, and the sightseeing. I recommend this program to any volunteers who wish to contribute to some of the most vulnerable communities, in a location that's off the beaten track.” - Victoria P, Volunteer in Uganda
