Africa Visits

Today Sue Radcliffe, IVHQ Programs Administrator, landed on New Zealand soil, back from her trip to the volunteer in Peru and volunteer in Ecuador programs. We are looking forward to hearing all about the work our in-progress volunteers have been contributing to these programs in the coming week. As Sue returns, IVHQ program coordinator, Jamie-lee Reynolds prepares to depart for her trip to check out our volunteer in Africa programs. Next week Jamie-lee will head straight to the volunteer in Ghana program where she will spend a full week splitting her time between the great selection of programs we offer covering teaching, orphanage work, agriculture work, sports education and medical work. Jamie-lee will continue on to visit the Uganda, Kenya and South Africa programs over the following two weeks. Jamie-lee will be visiting home stays, volunteer houses and projects to ensure our programs are running smoothly and providing the experience our volunteers are looking for.

If you are going to be on one of our Africa volunteer programs over the next month, keep an eye out for Jamie-lee who would love to see how you’re going.

Facebook is a great way to receive up-to-date information from IVHQ and get in touch with other volunteers heading to the same volunteer program. This week IVHQ had 3,450 active monthly users and a total of 3,313 ‘likes’. The IVHQ facebook page is also a great tool for getting advice from previous volunteers. Marissa Montamat has offered to share her experience from Ghana: “Hey there! I just got back from Ghana doing the orphanage program through IVHQ. It was an amazing experience and this organization/the staff there far exceeded any expectations. I would be happy to answer anyone's questions.” Make sure you get connected as soon as you start planning your volunteer program!
