"Absolutely amazing project. I would definitely recommend it! I definitely felt like I made a difference within the local community, my only complaint is I wish I could’ve stayed longer to volunteer more! The people at the volunteer projects and the local community were so grateful for our help and also our time. The accommodation hosts offered us great food and were always happy to provide for us! They were so lovely. Perfect hosts!"
