What the #IVHQ community is saying
”I loved my placement and the people I was able to work with. Volunteering was truly a life changing experience that I will treasure for the rest of my days. My accommodation was wonderful and I felt safe the whole time. I think I learned more from the kids than I ever could have taught them. IVHQ were so wonderful through my entire experience, thank you so much for everything!”
