Antelope Park 2016

My time at antelope park was overall excellent. I spent 8 weeks working in the community and I really began to have a connection with the students, community volunteers and staff. All staff and volunteers were great and made everyone feel comfortable.

Discovering volunteering with African Impact

As a first volunteering experience, I would definitely recommend African Impact. The organisation procures you a safe environment as well as interesting projects. The manager and coordinators are very attentive to your needs and really try to do their best to make you feel like home and live a good experience.
Concerning the project Girl Impact, i liked it a lot. It was very interesting working with young girls as well as working with older women.

My time in Zanzibar

My time in Zanzibar has been nothing short of amazing. As soon as I stepped out of the taxi I felt instantly welcomed not only by the amazing project managers and other volunteers but also every local I passed by. The staff here are very accommodating and go above and beyond to help you with absolutely anything, answer all of your questions and make you feel happy and welcomed.
Teaching my classes is an experience that I will never forget. I have never felt so much satisfaction as I do when I teach my both my nursery classes and my adult English class. So many of my students have such a hunger to learn and so much potential.
Coming here would have to be one of the best and most rewarding things that I have ever done. I have fallen so in love with Zanzibar and all of the people here. I would definitely recommend this project to everyone!
