Incredible

The 7 weeks I spent teaching in English were full of non stop smiles and laughter - you'll never feel alone or ever want to come home. I can't even begin to explain how much the kids that I taught had an impact on me - whilst in Madagascar I felt a happiness that I'd never felt before. You'll be welcomed with such warm hearts and their constant smiles do spread! The experience I had was enriching & fulfilling to say the least, I came home having felt I'd made an impact on the kids lives and I can't explain how that feels. You'll make friends for life, both with the volunteers and the local people you meet - and Jessi (the program co-ordinator) is a godsend. Nosy Komba is a dream and more!

Came as a volunteer, stayed as a staff member

I arrived in May to be a part of the Teaching Project. I was slated to stay for one month and within two weeks of teaching, I started really wishing that I could stay longer. I fell in love with my students, the people in the village, staff at our camp, the beauty of Nosy Komba, and I just knew that I had to stay. It's been a few months now and I'm already sad at the thought of ever leaving. Coming to Madagascar and being a part of this volunteer program has been a life changing experience and one that made me realize my dreams.
