RCDP Nepal

I had a fantastic experience in Nepal with RCDP. The language program in the first week was very useful and provides me with some basic Nepali. Which I used a lot! Volunteering at the health post was very interesting and I learned a lot about the Nepali daily life by living with the host family. I specially loved the festival! Overall I am very happy with my experience and will treasure it for the rest of my life.

Green Life Volunteers

My name is Kaho Leung and I did my graduation internship at Green Life Volunteers. Janina Schan is the owner, a very helpful young woman who has a clear vision on the idea of volunteering. All of her projects are handpicked by herself to see if these projects are really sustainable by giving back to the locals & environment. This triggered me to come to Costa Rica and spend my 7 months here. My job was focused on marketing development of Green Life Volunteers on one hand and on the other hand I was doing my research on target segmentation of the volunteering industry of students volunteering abroad. I worked 5 days a week with Janina on the assignments which could be for example: posting on job platforms, contacting tour operators for a collaboration, making movies of the projects, online content management on the website etcetera. Of course, Janina helped me alot with giving advice and information but there was also free space for my own ideas on certain subjects which I really appreciated because that kept me motivated as well during this time. There was also time for fun things in the weekend for example: watching wildlife, boat tours, surfing, drinking or just having quality time with nice friends on the beach. I would really recommend Green Life Volunteers to volunteer because they have real sustainable projects with the same quality as other volunteering organizations, they are one of the cheapest in Costa Rica and I just wish Green Life Volunteers to grow in having more volunteers for Janina.

RCDP Nepal

I had such an amazing time in Nepal. What I believe made my experience in Nepal so great was the people there my host family was so welcoming even though it was last minute placing. The kids at the monastery were such a joy and I definitely want to come and teach them again. At first I really apprehensive to stay with a host family but it is part of the experience and I learned a lot of the Nepali culture through staying with them. What a great about the program is the people who were in charge of the project like Diti Sherpa. He was friendly and helped us out if we even had a question. Hom was only a call away and just knowing that, I felt more relaxed in my environment. Thank you RCDP!

A Broader View Volunteers Corp

I am very thankful for this whole experience in Uganda as it taught me a lot about myself, and showed me how amazing people are all the way on the other side of the globe. The people I met changed my life for the better which included the natives of Uganda and the other volunteers/tourists I was able to meet. They showed me a different kind of lifestyle that works, but that can be made better as a community as a whole and that there are wonderful people out there doing just that!
I was able to meet and talk with Hydyn and deliver solar lights. Along with his story the actual giving of the solar lights was an amazing experience, the families were so appreciative. When we delivered them in the rural parts where there is no electricity, it was hard to see such living conditions as if you wanted a flashlight you had to walk 10 miles there and 10 miles back, so the people receiving the lights were very thankful and we had a great time making them smile and dancing and hugging. It was a well rounded amazing experience.
ABV USA support was great prior to traveling. ABV was right to cancel our trip to Kenya due to the safety issues at that moment in the country. After canceling the trip they were amazing in working with us on making sure we were still able to go with their program to a different country. ABV was good at answering all of our questions through email with a quick responses.
