From Ireland [01/04/2016]
Thank you! Volunteering with you has been one of the best experiences of my 6 months trip in Africa! It has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to experience rural Malawi life and learn about the challenges affecting people living in poverty. My hosts were kind hearted, welcoming and friendly and treated me like part of the family. (I now have a big extended Malawian family!)
I had the opportunity to help with a rural farm club, teach in a pre-school and help the NGO with admin and fundraising activities. It was a humbling and sometimes heart breaking experience, seeing the extreme poverty some families were living in and the lack of resources available. I am honoured to have been able to assist in some small way. I would encourage other volunteers to come visit this project as there are lots of ways to help and great need in the community – It may just be a life changing experience for you too!
