Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

My name is Lori Burgess. My daughter Brooke went on a GLA trip to Guatemala last summer. She had an extraordinary experience, was well taken care of by the GLA staff and gave back to an underprivileged society. It was a growing experience for a impressionable 15-year-old who learned to put others before herself.

Askari WCP

When I first arrived at Askari I was a little bit afraid and wondering if everything was going to work out, but when I got to know the people and the work that is being done at Askari I can safely say that it has been the best time I have ever had!

Askari WCP

The 12 weeks I spent in Askari were awesome! I met great people, learnt a lot about wildlife and how to conserve it and had a lot of fun at the same time! Pidwa and the animals living in the reserve are gorgeous, volunteering there is a real pleasure; everyday is different and you really feel like you're helping making a difference. Ed and Katie are great and very welcoming, they're always happy to share their knowledge about the bush and will make you want to stay longer!

A Broader View Volunteers Corp

Overall the trip was very memorable. I got to watch a ton of endoscopes, discussion and shadowing the doctor’s at the hospital, there were a few other volunteers and students working at the hospital at that time, I’m glad I came and stayed with a host family so that I could really immerse myself in the culture. There are tons of options for sightseeing, trekking, and traveling and I very much enjoyed the experience.
I would advice if you are coming during winter, BRING LOTS OF WARM CLOTHINGS! Nights get freezing during winter and you’ll be glad you brought sweaters, hats and gloves. Definitely go to Pokhara and Nagarkot. We had a lot of fun in both of those places but prepared to travel for a long time to get to/from Pokhara.
The Staff support in country was great – he was extremely helpful in both orientating me to the city and helping to plan any outside trips. He’s is very dependable and whenever I needed anything he would accommodate. He’s super patient and has no problem sitting down and explaining anything I found confusing or needed help with. And the rooms are spacious and there is a locker in each room to put your personal belongings. Sudir and his family are super nice and gave us extra blankets. The food was tasty with a homemade traditional Nepalese dinner and a more western breakfast. The doors all lock and I overall felt very safe. Watching the sunrise over the Himalayas in Nagarkot. It was a really beautiful, once in a lifetime experience and I would recommend it to anyone.
