It was easy to see everything on the website about your chosen program. I liked having the pre-departure booklet and was good to have before leaving for the program.
The Staff was great. If I ever emailed I would always receive an email back helping me as they could and while on my program, any little question asked was always answered even if it meant our tour guide had to find it out for us.
I loved my placement. Best experience of my life. I do feel like it was worthwhile, however I did feel at certain points that it probably would not have mattered if I was there or not. But I was always willing to help and definitely felt appreciated by everyone involved.
The accommodation was exactly how I expected and in some areas it was better than I thought and actually better than some volunteers. I felt very lucky. Meals were always good and very accommodating towards my vegan dietary with no questions asked which I also appreciated.
The in-country coordinator and support staff was Amazing. Everybody was there for you no matter what and did whatever they could to help you and help you have the best time ever.
The highlight was meeting not only the group I was working with, I got to meet other volunteers and get close with them and make friends for life with people from all over the world. The volunteering at the elephant village and the childcare center was the best experience and so rewarding! It could never be replaced!
I believed I had 3 weeks volunteering and 1week at the beach but I turned out that I only had two weeks volunteering as excursions are also included in those 3 weeks. I would if like more volunteering involved even if it was just a few more days at the childcare center. Other than that I had the best month of my life and I would recommend it to anyone even contemplating the idea. It's more than just volunteering as you get to travel and see amazing sights you haven't and will never see again. Thank you for the most amazing experience of my life, thus far!!
