I met so many volunteers and it really felt like I made a difference. It was such a rewarding experience and everyone is so friendly. The local team that Ivhq put me through to was so accommodating and helpful. The customer service as well was amazing. I would 100% recommend this to all my friends. My trip started off with an orientation that really prepared me for the week. Then we had an optional walking tour which was great for food prices and buses etc. so it made us aware of where we had to go. I also love that they tell us about the culture and how to not be rude and how to take care of ourselves while we’re there. During the week the field manager was extremely helpful with showing us what to do even though he didn’t speak English. He didn’t just leave us hanging but put us to work which is what we were there for. Lastly, the fact that you have travel partners for weekend trips was the cherry on top! It made everything so easy- getting picked up and dropped off was amazing because other places only pick you up from hotels so it’s a great incentive for the volunteers. The whole experience was amazing.
How can this program be improved?
Maybe standardize the food more with all the house moms because everyone has different quantities and it makes you feel that you may not have had your money’s worth
Would you recommend this program?
