South African experience

I couldn’t be happier about my volunteer trip to South Africa. The entire trip was simply put, absolutely amazing. The kids I was allowed to work with brought me more smiles than I’ve ever had. They taught me so much and are so such strong little souls especially knowing what they have been through. The entire experience completely opened my eyes. On top of the great volunteer program I was able to meet other friends who I have remained in contact with and am planning to travel again with. We were also allowed so much independence that I was also allowed to explore the country on my time while not volunteering which made my trip even better. From the second I even began emailing IVHQ they helped me with every single step along the way in a timely manner. Even when I got to my program in Africa they were also willing to accommodate every need/desire that I could ask for. I would highly recommend going through this program to anyone who asks.

    It is great to hear that you enjoyed your time on the program and working with children! It sounds like you had an amazing time, made some great friends and took advantage of everything South Africa has to offer. ^Claire - IVHQ South Africa Program Manager
