Volunteer with International Volunteer HQ

"I Absolutely feel my project was suitable and the experience worthwhile. I loved the accommodation!!! Everything was excellent!!! The family was very warm and welcoming, always making sure everything was okay. The food was great! I can’t pick one favorite moment! After being gone for 6 months there were too many. Watching how excited the kids get receiving uji Monday – Friday is pretty awesome and they chant uji time uji time uji time as they line up. Getting to hear the kids yell your name and wanting you to wave at them whenever you see them is also pretty great!!" —Erin Vande Brink, Kenya, 2010
