Teaching in Tanzania made me realize what major I wanted to study, and it made me want to go on more volunteer trips. My time teaching the kids was my amazing, especially when we took them on a field trip and taught them how to swim - it was incredible and I would love to do it again. I loved my 5 months in Arusha, I got to know a lot of the places and a lot of the culture. I learned a lot of Swahili - I can speak basic conversation fluently, and I was able to understand a lot of things by the end of my trip. It was really hard to let my kids go, but it made me want to go back someday. Alejandra Alonso, 20 (Volunteer in Tanzania)

My experience in Ecuador was great and it exceeded all my expectations. Volunteering opened my mind to several things and changed my perspective about many subjects. The help we gave to the children was very valuable, and I feel the connections we made with them really made a difference. Juan Hurtado, 19 (Volunteer in Ecuador)

Orientation was very informative and fun. I really got a feel for the people and culture. My volunteer experience in India was one of the greatest experience of my life. I had so much fun and met amazing people. My host family feels like real family and they have been amazingly kind to me over these past 12 weeks. I feel my volunteering really did help make a difference in the kids lives. I am so glad that I decided to do it and will come back soon. Crystal Hellwig, 18 (Volunteer in India)
