I found that the support and guidance before the trip was extremely helpful and made me feel very well prepared. The local team was extremely helpful and welcoming upon my arrival. I feel as if this project has had a massive impact on me. It has inspired me to pursue my dreams of becoming a teacher and gave me closure on why I am so passionate about choosing that career path.

Whenever I read reviews about places like this, I always take what is written with a grain of salt. However, I genuinely had an amazing experience at my placement in Fiji. Everyone that I met, local and other volunteers, were so unbelievably kind and friendly and made the experience that much better. Going in with an open mindset that people and basic things you may be used to, will be different, is the best way to get the most out of your experience. Regardless of where you offer your help, you will feel appreciated and if I could go back for longer, I wouldn't hesitate. This experience is beyond worth it, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get out of their comfort zone and help people from another culture.

I had an amazing experience with my 12 year old son volunteering in a local village in Fiji. We got to know the locals and made wonderful memories with the kids. I would absolutely recommend IVHQ to anyone looking to be immersed in the local culture and make a positive impact. This is my 2nd trip with IVHQ and plan to schedule my next one!

My hightlight moment from the volunteer experience was interacting with the locals, experiencing their culture, but most of all, seeing the smiles on the kids face everyday. The biggest impact my volunteering trip had on me was I was able to see how different cultures live and enjoy the simple wonders of life. It is an experience of a lifetime and you just have to get out of your comfort zone and do it. It will be an amazing experience that will last a lifetime.
