"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
International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) aims to provide volunteer travellers with quality, flexible, safe and highly affordable volunteering placements in developing countries. In addition to providing aid and assistance to these countries, IVHQ endeavors to increase education and heighten awareness through not only the skills and expertise taken by volunteers to their host communities and institutions, but also through the experiences and lessons volunteers will in turn take back to their own countries and cultures.
