We Volunteer Nepal

Volunteering in Nepal was probably one of the most interesting and fun things I had the chance to ever do. Everybody that was involved with the program was super friendly and they gave us all the support we needed throughout. Moreover, they also guided us through Kathmandu and helped us understand the Nepali culture as well as learn about their history and tradition. I would definitely recommend We Volunteer Nepal to anyone who wants to be sure to have an absolutely amazing experience at a very good price, make new friends, contribute to other people’s lives and grow as a person.

Askari WCP

I felt privileged to work as a volunteer at Askari for a month, that I could share in the vision of a wilderness reserve managed for habitat and wildlife conservation as the first and only priority. And have such fun doing it! We slept under the stars one night and watched the sunrise with lions roaring in the distance. We watched hyaenas play, elephants wander up close, and lion cubs tumbling about under their mother's watchful gaze. A cheetah brought down an impala and fed with her cubs right outside the front gate - amazing to see. We rescued trees strangled by wire and murdered more prickly pear than I can remember. Thanks so much to the Askari staff Katie & Ed, and Pidwa staff Andrew and Elricht for their incredible knowledge, good company and honesty about the management dilemmas facing wilderness reserves and national parks under pressure on a crowded planet. It was a great experience -- highly recommend it!

Institute for Field Research Expeditions - IFRE

There were two reasons why I wanted to volunteer abroad: 1. Gain valuable clinical experience 2. Practice my spanish. Both of these were fulfilled to an amazing extent. My clinical site was San Juan De Dios with the Physical Therapy department. The staff was welcoming and willing to teach me. Working with disabled children was an unbelievably rewarding experience. Practicing spanish was easy and Peru, specifically Cusco, is a wonderful place. The host family, like everyone else here, were wonderful. There wasn't a day where I felt like this wasn't home.

Sol Education Abroad

I can't give Sol Education abroad enough praise for the wonderful experience they provide to their students. Sol met and surpassed all of my expectations for a study abroad program. I experienced complete immersion through living with a host family who provided 3 traditional meals a day, through cultural activities and excursions led by Sol directors, and through classes taught by Spanish professors at a local university.
Granada is the perfect location in Spain for students because it offers everything you could want in one location: beautiful city streets and great places to eat and enjoy tapas, the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby for hiking and skiing, and golden beaches close enough for a day trip.
I would pick Sol all over again and every time!

RCDP International Volunteer Abroad

Volunteering in Cusco has been an awesome experience! I've been able to meet most of the host families and they are all great! My host mom, Maria, is amazing and cooks great food for all of us, and keeps a very neat apartment flat.
Volunteering in the clinics here has been awesome, and getting to know the local nurses, doctors, and med school students has allowed me to learn a lot from all of them, as well as have a really fun time while doing it.
The locals are great, and it's easy to make local friends if you put in the effort. There are free salsa lessons every night from 9 to 11 in the city center, making it really fun in the night as well.
I highly recommend this program, city and it's people to anyone who wants to have a great time!
