I found Connect-123 to be an amazing program and I could not be happier with my previous summer in South Africa. I spent two gorgeous months in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. I found CT to be one of the friendly and most welcoming please I have ever traveled to. Connect-123 set me up with a wonderful apartment and an amazing opportunity with Christel House South Africa, a school working the break the cycle of poverty. I had a life changing summer and my experience has really taught to me look at the world in a different way.
My day to day life in Cape Town included waking up and being at Christel House at 7:30 a.m.working with the most amazing children in the world until 3:00 p.m. and then back to the apartment. In the afternoons and evenings I would hang out with friends and maybe go out for drinks at night.
On the weekends we went to wine festivals, hiked mountains, took road trips, and explored the city.
I must say that this was by far the best experience of my life and felt that it would not have been possible without Connect-123
