My 3 weeks volunteering in Nkope village were the most worthwhile and enjoyable experience I've had in another country. The teaching was very different from here in Ireland but the staff working for NAV really made this transition very manageable. So much so that there would be nothing stopping someone with very little teaching experience from taking part in this program. The children in the area are an absolute joy to work with and really made the trip special. There is a wonderful balance between volunteer work and seeing other areas and sights in Malawi which I was really thankful for as Malawi is such a beautiful country. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and right on the shores of the lake which provides amazing views.
Overall if you are a first time volunteer or even a veteran volunteer, this program is a wonderful opportunity to see a new country while making your own positive impact on the area. I would 100% recommend any of Naturally Africa's programs and will be looking to them for future projects.
