Volunteering Abroad in Cape Town, South Africa

I volunteered in an orphanage in Cape Town in the summer of 2014. It was and amazing experience, the word amazing doesn't even begin to cover it! I spent 9 weeks being exposed to the wonderful culture and people of South Africa. I did some work with the people of the townships and got to see all the tourist sights at the same time. The weather was lovely, the people were amazing, and the program was very fulfilling, I truly felt like I made a difference in these people's lives, even if it was for a short time. The housing situation was nice and ELI really helped me get ready for the experience, I am very appreciative of their services.
