I loved my placement and the people I was able to work with. Volunteering was truly a life changing experience that I will treasure for the rest of my days. My accommodation was wonderful and I felt safe the whole time. I think I learned more from the kids than I ever could have taught them. IVHQ were so wonderful through my entire experience, thank you so much for everything!

To all my fellow TVE volunteers (by far not all pictured): You guys inspire me so much everyday! You make me want to be kinder, more generous, more accepting, to be more thoughtful and do more for others, think more outside the box, take more risks and live more fully. And just to embrace being who I am. A better version of myself. I thought just being around the kids during this trip would change my life...little did I know. You all just rock my world! It feels good to know our generation and our planet has people like you. #tve #volunteers #ivhqtanzania #safari

Today was our last day at Levolosi Hospital, the last four weeks have flown by, couldn't have met a better bunch of doctors and nurses, was able to deliver seven beautiful babies, assisted on a Caesarean section and even had a baby named after me! Can't wait to be at home at the end of the week!! ✈️ #ivhq #studentnurse #volunteer #travelling #doctors #nurses #africa #ivhqtanzania #tanzania #levolosi
