A great experience!

This is my first volunteer abroad experience, also an unforgettable and fun one! All our coordinators like Alice, Caitlin and Genevieve are very nice, friendly and helpful. They make this program meaningful and we learnt a lot from this program. We performed game counting, bird monitoring, camera trap setting, data collection, beach cleaning and school teaching during these 2 weeks. Langebaan is a beautiful and peaceful town. The volunteer house is very much like home, and close to the beach and supermarket. Also, I made good friends with other volunteers like Yongtong, Mengjiao and Janz. Overall, I enjoyed the whole volunteer life!
