Impact Experiencie

Sincerely it was very frustrating the first week for me on home based care. Health care here is pretty different from my country and in my opinion it doesn't work as it should be because I think it would be a good idea working together with the clinics as a team in order to make a real follow on patients, specially on those who have cronic diseases. I know that they apreciate our help but I feel that we just supplies some of their lacks for a few days but there isn't a real following. Despite this fact, I could learn a lot for this experience. I know that they have anything and mostly of times they can't afford going to the clinics so we are their only option to access health care.
On the other hand the coordinators were very flexible and I could try other proyects like Girl Impact which I think it is very interesting for the development of the society here. They were also very closely and I really apreciated their attention in order to satisfy all our wishes about proyects and making us feeling comfortable here. The mates were amazing and of course all the activities I've tried on weekends were awesome.

experience

Those past 4 weeks flew by. I loved the flexibility, because it enabled me to also try the home based-care and to see more than one school. The teaching experience opened my eyes. You can see everywhere sand, holes and trash, but the mentality is nonetheless so much more positive, more free and more gentle than where I come from. The people i worked with were amazing. The children i tought were amazing. The trips in the weekend were amazing. The food was amazing.

Community Teaching and Lion Project`

I have had the most amazing experience here at Antelope Park! Between walking with the lions and handling the elephants, this trip has most certainly exceeded my expectations. If you are given the opportunity to volunteer here, please take it!

TEARS

The time that I have spent with African Impact has been absolutely incredible. All of the staff have been so welcoming and made me feel at home from the word go. Being at TEARS has by far been the best thing I have ever done, all of the staff and other volunteers were so friendly and made sure you got what you wanted out of your time volunteering. Being able to see the dogs improving everyday due to your time and patience is the best feeling in the world.
