Senior Volunteers Abroad in Guatemala

"One of my greatest life experiences. My placement at a local school was even more than I could have hoped for. The staff there were fantastic and so appreciative. My homestay with Mama Julia was the best, I would only want to stay there with her if I was to return to Tanzania. I loved meeting the families of the children, receiving their gratitude, working with such appreciative staff and of course, the beautiful children that I got to know." - Glenda Bernstein, 55 (IVHQ Volunteer in Tanzania)
