Camp Mwandi - An Unforgettable Experience

From the minute you start working with Unearth the World, you immediately feel that they have selected their projects with care. So it's no surprise that the project itself is simply amazing. Never have I ever felt more impactful... the long days of building with termite poo to create longstanding houses for those in need were well worth it! Just knowing that I helped create something that would make someone's life that much safer and better was more rewarding than any of the other volunteer experiences I've done yet.

Mwandi itself is so far removed from everything, that you feel as though you're in a safe little bubble. Everyone is eager to work, the food is good, and the nights spent by the campfire chatting are so fun. You won't find a warmer, more hospitable staff either.

Don't think too much more, just do it! You'll never look back. It's a life changing experience - to step out of yourself and help others... once there, the journey no longer becomes about you. It's about them. You'll appreciate that new attitude.
