Living and volunteering in the village has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. After just 4 short weeks, the place had truly become my home, and the people my family.

I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It's a perfect way to travel and just an experience unlike any other, it'll likely stay with you for the rest of your life.

My volunteer experience in China was the best 8 weeks of my life. Be prepared to step outside your comfort zone and I can assure you that it is rewarding beyond words.
