Special Needs in Kenya!
Submitted by Betina - Portland | April 24, 2018
I just finished my time in Kenya volunteering with Special Needs! The time spent was not long enough! I was so pleased with the communication of the team for local placement, local transportation, and even back at the office with IVHQ. You have to be open minded and ready for anything, and you will have a GREAT experience. The orientation really helped prep me for what to expect as far as making Kenya home for my time here, and my home stays were welcoming and treated me like family. Plus I have made friends for life with the other volunteers! I fell in love with all the children at my placement, and I was so sad to leave! I am already planning my return back to stay longer. I also got the opportunity to go on a safari and see an amazing city tour, thanks to the companies IVHQ partnered with. I always felt taken care of, which is important! Highly recommend and to come ready for anything!!

When I first applied I was very apprehensive . As first time plus I was 65years old. My emails and preparation put me at ease. on arrival at no time did I feel lost. was greeted by Green Lion and found I was welcomed with open arms and so helpful. My 2 weeks went so fast I wished had stayed longer. The other volunteers where all amazing the staff everywhere was so amazing. Words can not describe my experience.

I went to Ghana for 2 weeks on a medical volunteer program and it was a very eye opening experience. The people here have so much enthusiasm about meeting new people. The food was amazing and the culture is beautiful. Would recommend the experience to any medical person wishing to volunteer abroad. The only thing I wish there was more of was medical supplies.

A beautiful experience

You simply MUST go to Zambia. The country, the landscape, the people here are something one has to see, has to experience. IVHQ volunteer program was the ideal set-up for me to be there at an acceptable cost, to meet local (and other volunteers) people, to be able to join a project helping children. While the primary goal was to help them, I could also do some touristic activities in the free-time. ANY help is more than welcome, sometimes simply your presence is important for them. Children are incredibly friendly and they really want to learn from you.
Wild Elephant Program
Submitted by Ryan Leys - West Lorne | April 20, 2018
My time in Sri Lanka was second to none! Getting to help conserve wild elephants while seeing many other species of mammals, birds, and reptiles was incredible! The staff become good friends if you stay long enough and the food alone is worth staying for! Some of the best I’ve ever eaten! I highly recommend this program to anyone who loves conservation or nature!
