United Planet/ICYE Honduras

United Planet, part of the larger worldwide group ICYE, was an amazing experience. I did the 6 month program and volunteered at a rehabilitation center for children with cerebral paralysis. I worked there every day, and then spent time with the many friends that I made in Honduras. I lived with a host family, and since my host sisters were my age I was able to connect with a lot of people and make lots of friends. I was also really close with the other volunteers, who came from all over Europe. We were able to travel together all the time, and see so many amazing places in Honduras and surrounding countries. While this program was on the more expensive side, working to save up for it was totally worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
