IVHQ was amazing to deal with, everything being online in a checklist made it so easy to follow and I felt prepared and understood what I was getting myself into before coming! I would definitely book through them again.
The local team was beyond amazing, could not recommend them more. They were just a message away and made us feel safe at all times.
At my school, it felt like we made a difference in the kids' lives. Simply donating items and money to contribute to them was amazing and turning up everyday to hundreds of smiling kids was heart warming.
The accommodation was great. The team always fixed any problems that happened or had the generator going for us if the power was out. Our accommodation was way better than I thought. The meals were amazing, there were so many options and I was never left hungry. The mamas fed us so much and always cooked anything extra or helped out with dietary requirements and went above and beyond.
I feel like I gained a sense of gratitude and to appreciate everything I have at home. I was able to be put out of my comfort zone in many areas and I am so forever grateful as I feel like I’m returning home a better person. Experiencing a new culture that is so different was completely new to me but I loved every second of it. After this experience I’m so excited to look into where I can go next - this program brought me to Africa when I don’t think I ever would’ve come otherwise. I will forever be grateful and wish I could stay longer.
