Volunteering in Fiji was truly a life-changing experience. It was so fulfilling to interact and connect with the youth in the villages and schools. I enjoyed teaching the children how to wash their hands and brush their teeth in the schools. The kids were so eager to learn and they couldn't stop smiling and hugging myself and the other volunteers. It was touching to see how happy the people of Fiji are, even though they do not have a lot of money, the community is super tight and connected. The local team was extremely welcoming and friendly. It was very easy to contact them if you needed anything. Transportation always arrived on time. The food was delicious and included some traditional Fijian cuisine. The accommodation was close to nearby hotels, restaurants, shopping and beaches! For part of my trip I was able to enter the sports program since the hours didn't conflict with health education. It would have been nice to do both for the entire trip. So maybe during registration, it could offer to add programs at your specific site.

Volunteering was the best experience of my life ! The turtles are so cute and it was very fulfilling to take care of them. I met loads of amazing people, visited places that looked absolutely out of this world, and gained lots of independence. I feel as though this experience has changed me as a person, I’ve learnt a lot. The coordinators are amazing: they’re easygoing, funny, dedicated and always there to make you smile. The food and the accommodation was excellent.

The trip was the most incredible experience of my life. It sounds overdramatic to describe it like this but the combination of the people and the program was amazing. I met beautiful people and shared the best experiences - we've already planned trips to see each other after the program! The local team were beautiful people. They made sure we were comfortable and well fed. The accommodation was kept clean and tidy. A plumbing issue was dealt with quickly.

I went for four weeks in Bali to teach English in a kindergarten to children. I made it throug games and exercises. They were very friendly and respectful. They have immediately considered me as their teacher. They knew very little English but all that I had to do was smile and use gestures. For any help I could asked to the teacher who knew English. One week the school was closed for a celebration so I cleaned a beach and I started a new activitie to renovate a school. I also participated at a celebration and it was very interesting! It was a really good experience that I suggest for everyone! Local team was fun and helpful. I ate local food but not only and everything was delicious! Every Thursday there was a special dinner with all the staff and the volunteers! My accomodation was simple but good.
