Go Volunteer Africa Reviews
I highly recommend the program
Submitted by Patrick | October 24, 2017
I recommend everybody to go and experience what Uganda offers. The people were so warm and welcoming. I was so lucky to be accommodated with Lillian the school director and her family. I was welcomed into her home as one of the family and I really felt at home during my stay. From the moment I was introduced to the staff and children, I felt at home and very welcome at the school. It was quickly agreed that I teach English and I was given the teaching aids that were necessary for classes. The other teachers were especially helpful if I had any questions. Everywhere we went kids came to hug us and adults took us in with open arms.
The biggest challenge, resources are so incredibly scarce for local schools; it seems to be the biggest limiting factor for getting things done and making progress. The school themselves struggle to stay in operation on a daily basis, and have virtually no support from within their own country.
Go Volunteer Africa arranged a safari for us and it was absolutely fantastic. The driver was very competent – I felt very safe in the vehicle! He was also very knowledgeable with respect to the wildlife – in terms of both identification and giving us information about specific animals. The food was also very good. GVA is a very small organization and very personal, they give all the support needed. I highly recommend them.
It was amazing!

I went on a Go Volunteer Africa placement in Kenya, it was amazing! I was placed in an orphanage based outside the Nairobi capital, where I volunteered for 6 weeks. My Kenyan coordinators were very helpful and often went out of their way to assist me, and quickly responded to complaints. Living conditions were more comfortable than I expected.
I would rate them really high. The support I received and the experiences I had while in Kenya were so great and will stay with me forever! It’s hard to describe accurately in words my time in Nairobi it was an awesome experience. Thanks Go Volunteer Africa team.

My volunteer experience in Kenya was an incredible experience.. Thanks to Go Volunteer Africa, I was able to meet some of the most interesting and influencing people in my life. I've always believed that travel stimulates growth, and Go Volunteer Africa gave me the greatest opportunity. My in country contacts were caring and head office in Uganda was supportive and responsive. I would definitely recommend this experience to those who are missing out.
Incredibly life changing and eye opening experience!

I had an incredibly life changing and eye opening experience with Go Volunteer Africa in Kenya. I didn't know what I would find there or what the experience would even feel like. There was no way for me to prepare for such an exploration, no past event I could reflect on. All I knew was that I had to go because there is more than just the world that I am living in, and that was what I was dying to see.
I have done some previous travel to different countries, but never for longer than two weeks so a month seemed scary at first. The Ugandan based office staff was extremely helpful and made me feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. The in-country support was also great. I loved cooking with my host family, learning recipes and songs in Swahili and really getting a honest look at life in Kenya. I also liked that we had time on weekends to hangout and really explore the area. I felt safe the entire time. I really enjoyed working with the kids and liked that Go Volunteer Africa is African based and had long standing relationships in country so the programs were sustainable. Overall very rewarding and I’ll take this time abroad with me in life forever.
