I'm so glad I volunteered with IVHQ, such an amazing organisation and the project was fantastic. It will be hard to find a better volunteering experience than one with IVHQ. I've traveled before and was skeptical about working and travelling solo but the team and the friends you make really do all they can to ensure you have the best experience possible. If you have any doubts then don't! Just do it, you will not be disappointed!
