African Impact Reviews

This was a great experience. The hospital staff was inviting and willing to share their information with volunteers. You can go to all areas in the hospital and learn from everyone. I recommend this to anyone that wants to learn about health care in a different country.

Two weeks with the beautiful African Impact family was too short. The staff and volunteers run each specific program according to their various needs, with the upmost diligence and organisation. All of the staff make each volunteer feel so welcomed and open to share their ideas to expand the programs

Amazing experience working with a team of wonderful people. There is a great variety of activities so one is never bored. Great combination of work and fun. The staff...drivers, community volunteers, coordinators are all awesome! They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and having a memorable experience. And the country....I have travelled all over the African continent...this is now my favorite spot, breathtakingly beautiful! If I had come all this way to just see the falls would have been absolutely worth it. Community project was great, the kids energetic and excited to learn and the staff working on the project make it feel like a family.

Girl Empowerment through my eyes

Being able to make such an impact, not only for empowering girls, but also for educating boys, as you can't have one without the other; has left me looking back at this experience and feeling fulfilled. I feel like I left an impact, that I'm leaving something behind and I couldn't have been more happier for that. This experience has shown me how important the little things are in love and how some people can be happy, truly happy, without having that much. I have worked with kids, pregnant women, teenagers and people trying to prepare themselves for job interviews and everything that comes after that; and even if it has only been 2 weeks, I feel like they have inspired and impacted me more than I have did that to them. Also, all of the friends I've met here, all of the people I've met, not only in the wonderful Lion House, but the whole Obs, make me dread the day I have to return back home, as I wish I could stay here with them, in this very formation and moment, forever. I know, in the depth of my heart, that I am going to return here, probably sooner than you'd think, because after I've had a sip of how it feels to make the others happy, without wanting anything in return, I can't let it go. The people I've worked with are wonderful, creative and open-minded people, without whom this whole thing will not be running right now. It is truly an amazing place and it is something I am so glad I've had the chance to experience it.
