A Kan-do attitude in Kenya!04/17/2015How could this program be improved?
We expected three meals a day, however this is not common in Kenya. Typically you will just have a hot drink in the morning and a large meal for dinner. This was somewhat of a surprise to us but now after having visited Kenya twice, I realise it is a cultural difference.
Thailand Hill Tribe Community Experience04/17/2015How could this program be improved?
I think that this program is very wel organised in terms of type of volunteer work, transport to and from placement, accomodation, meals and local interaction. I felt very much apart of the community and can not think of any changes I would have made to my experience.
South Africa Childcare program04/15/2015How could this program be improved?
I would probably say the food. The lady who cooked for us did'nt cook as good as I imagined.
