Volunteer Winners: May 2012

To celebrate the launch of June, let's take a look at the winners of last month's IVHQ Photo and Video Competitions and Feedback Draw...

Aoife Cassidy's photo titled 'Moment' gained the most votes for the IVHQ Photo Competition for May, winning Aoife the monthly prize of US$100. Aoife is donating her prize money to the orphanage where she spent 6 weeks on our Kenya volunteer program. Aoife is also registered to volunteer in Peru on our Medical Placement later in the year.

Rabale Hasan is the IVHQ Video Competition winner for May with this video she shared recollecting her experience volunteering in Peru with a group of medical students from the University of Connecticut. 

We are very grateful to our volunteers for taking the time to share feedback from their volunteering experiences with us and we are happy to announce this month's Feedback Draw winner is Jayne Herman who spent 4 weeks volunteering in Costa Rica on our Teaching English program.

"I found the local staff to be very organized, always very helpful and friendly and the facility itself is wonderful. I wanted to teach English and also get to work a little with kids which was exactly what I ended up doing. It was great because I actually got to plan my own lessons and teach my own classes but had break times to play with the kids as well. I LOVED my living accommodations. My host family was incredibly kind and made me feel so welcome."
