Yes, I recommend this program

4 month Volunteer

I was placed in the Saida centre, which was on the ground floor of the shelter the refugees lives in. This is great as it gave us a more immersive experience and we get work very closely with the community. Although we had to be very considerate of the community's culture and perception of us foreigners, it did not pose as a challenge to us. Even if you may just be teaching the children, you will also get a chance to interact and work with the adults. 4 months is a perfect duration to see the change you can make to the beneficiaries. Some of the staff members are refugees themselves, and some also live in the shelter. The people you are surrounded by are so welcoming, it feels almost like home to me. An experience I would highly recommend!
