    Seniors can have a worthwhile, affordable and interesting Vacation...AND make an impact.

    Please read my interview under Alumni Interviews.

    I most certainly have NO hesitation picking up my backpack in Hawaii and head to Cambodia for another experience with Volunteering Solutions. Yes I am 60+ but I am always treated by staff and other volunteers as a valuable volunteer. I have made many friends through my experiences.

    Love the organization, communication and the staff are THE best!

    Any 60+ thinking of a cruise...think again. VS can give you an experience WAY better than sailing on the seas!

    How could this program be improved?

    In Ghana. Maltiti School needs a more definitive curriculum that incoming volunteers could follow. Many young volunteers are very capable but they "do their own thing" ...which ultimately does not have as much impact as it could. There should be a curriculum structure to which they could adhere.

    My Time in Ghana
    11/05/2012

    I really loved my time in Ghana because I was given the opportunity to teach a classroom all by myself. While it was exceptionally challenging, I also truly enjoyed it and it was quite rewarding. I would recommend to any volunteers who will be teaching to bring some exercise books, and perhaps some paper and pens, as the supplies are not quite adequate.
    Aside from the volunteering, the chance to explore a whole new culture and meet a ton of different people was also invaluable. After school, I would often go into town and observe the marketplace and the people.
    My host family was also incredible, I really felt at home and welcome and I miss them every day.

    How could this program be improved?

    I would change the fact that it was so difficult sometimes to communicate with the children, as they speak little to no English.
    One other thing, I thought was that the cost of going on short trips on the weekends was a little too high. Since there is no real volunteering opportunity on Saturdays and Sundays, I wish the trips were a little more accessible and affordable.

    A great program that comes with the whole package. Its safe, fun, and affordable. What more could you ask for?

    They take care of you and REALLY do care for your wellbeing. You feel like your part of the culture and its quite the experience. You are the organizations priority, while volunteers work to better the community. The support you feel only encourages you to work harder! Its something everyone should experience.
