Latest Volunteer Reviews

Ubuntu Building Project

"100% definitely recommended to anyone. Volunteering in my chosen location was an experience of a lifetime, the challenges and experiences will stay with me for a lifetime and I'm so glad I decided to jump on board and put myself into uncharted waters to come out the other side a changed individual."

Wild Coast Schools Program

"The project was as organised as it could have been. Structurally very good with clear objectives for volunteers. I found it the most organised thing. But at the same time we had the freedom to use our own ideas and initiatives and that is a hard thing to achieve in a structured project."

Wild Coast Schools Program

"There are so many highlights to this program. I think the biggest is that through this experience I've got a new view of another world. It's really good for me."

Community Preschool Program

"The project was very well organized, it exceeded my expectations. I really loved the afternoon activities - helping at the Children's Home of Safety in particular. Drama club was also really cool - I think doing drama is really important and helps to children to develop as young, confident people."

Wild Coast Schools Program

"Everyday is a new beginning and the kids are willing to learn and get to know you better, it's just awesome to see the look on their faces as they discover something new on the computer. We kind of realise that no matter the background, where they come from, what they have and what they don't, kids are just kids!"

Community Preschool Program

"It's not easy work because there are almost 14 kids everyday, but all the hard work is rewarded by their smiles and the excited "bye-bye" that I get everyday."
