ChelseaAge: 19-24FemaleNashville, TNOtherResponse from Love VolunteersDear Chelsea, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We're so sorry to hear that your experience in Senegal was not a positive one but it's wonderful to know that we succeeded in our aim to fully support you throughout the process.

GiorgiaAge: 19-24FemaleMilan, ItalyOtherResponse from Love VolunteersDear Georgia, What a wonderful account of your volunteering experience - I felt like I was there in the Dakar heat with you! Thanks for mentioning Love Volunteers "outstanding differences in fees from other NGOs". We commend you for doing your research before becoming a volunteer and encourage other volunteers to do the same. We pride ourselves on not making a profit from our programs so we absolutely do not mark-up the program fees; they are exactly what the local partner requires to cover the cost of hosting the volunteer. All the best for your future endeavors, we hope to have you on-board again! The Team @ Love Volunteers

We work with local organisations wherever we can to keep administration costs to a minimum and also to return as much money and skills to the local communities where we operate. We can offer the lowest possible fees, but also ensure that you are immersed in the local culture and are actually making a difference!
