"This was without a doubt, the single greatest experience of my life"
Janet Patry, 32, United States, Kenya Volunteer
"I had the time of my life. From being blessed by the homeless at the soup kitchen to the kids not letting me go and telling me not go from the orphanage - it was a humbling experience and one that will affect me for the rest of my life! I cant wait for the next trip!"
Lupe Aguilar, 29, United States, Colombia Volunteer
"IVHQ was fantastic from the very outset, as were the local staff. They made every part of the experience enjoyable, affordable and most of all, memorable. To this day, I think about returning to Tanzania every moment and hope that in the future, I will be able to do so."
