This was an amazing experience! Re-Food is helping feed the poor with the help
Of local stores and restaurants, it truly is an amazing program with an amazing team to help support you!
The Food, Culture and ambiance of the city is truly amazing. The people are kind and thof cost is inexpensive compared to the rest of Europe. I never felt unsafe anywhere I went and well walking around Lisbon you are bound to lose weight because of the hills!

I stayed in this program for about a week. I was able to help a local food redistribution center during my time which did feel like I was doing some good for the locals in Lisbon. Part of that meant helping package up and storing/distributing food as well as going to collect food from the different restaurants involved with the program.
Apart from the volunteering aspect, there were some local excursions offered and also plenty of free time to go explore the city. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to help people and who wants to learn about a great city.

I stayed with ImpactTrip/IVHQ for three weeks to work in the Construction and Renovation group and can say that every day I was working there felt like I was actually making an impact that would last for a long time.
Besides that everyone I met (both in the accomodations and in the placement) were amazing and down to earth people that have the same intention to help and get to know the people of Portugal.
I wholeheartedly recommend this volunteering group.

Had a wonderful time spending a week in Porto and a week in Lisbon assisting the Just A Change group repair housing for folks who would not otherwise be able to do it themselves. It really is a great way to meet genuine friendly locals, see parts of the country one would probably overlook on the well trodden tourist routes and feel like you are contributing something to improving the quality of life for others. Would highly recommend this for someone who is looking for a wonderful, positive travel experience.

This program was one of the most enriching experiences Ive ever had. This was my first time volunteering and definitely not the last one! Being part of such a great project helped me fulfill everything I was expecting. Exciting on a personal level too, I met people Im still in touch with. Meeting people from all over the world serving the same cause was one of the greatest opportunities Ive ever had!
