From Mauku, New Zealand [08/08/2016]

I spent two weeks volunteering with this NGO in Chikwawa, and it has been a memorable and wonderful experience! It is a great opportunity to live within a rural Malawian village and learn all about their culture. My host family were most welcoming and made my stay really great. I helped the NGO with their youth club project, as well as administration and fundraising. The projects they run are very necessary within the Chikwawa community, and at times it can be hard to see the issues that these people are facing, but great to see that they are working hard to improve things. Definitely a worthwhile volunteering experience!
