Great Volunteer Feedback

With hundreds of volunteers currently in-progress on our many affordable volunteer programs we always like to check-in and see how they are finding their volunteer trip abroad. We follow up with every volunteer once they arrive and settle in so that they can send us their first impressions and let us know if there is anything which can be improved to make their remaining time any better. Kate Istead from Canada is currently on the Volunteer in Guatemala program. She writes – “I am having an AMAZING time in Guatemala. The local staff are awesome - very efficient, organized and friendly. The homestay experience is great - the woman taking care of us makes amazing meals and spoils us! There are 7 of us living with her - 4 Canadians and 3 Americans - so it has been easy to make friends and you never have to feel lonely. My project is working at a local school, doing maintenance work while the kids are on holidays. We have done lots of painting and just finished our first classroom and it looks great! I am covered in paint, but wouldn’t have it any other way. Today is the first day that it hasn’t rained, but honestly the weather hasn’t taken anything away from this experience. I’m so grateful to IVHQ for helping me to connect with this great placement. THANK YOU!”

Thank you Kate! We hope the rest of your construction and renovation volunteering goes just as well!
