I volunteered in Bali - Ubud for the health care education program. This was an amazing trip and I LOVED working with all of the kiddos! Bali is absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend this destination. I enjoyed my experience with IVHQ. Where I stayed was fine, it was clean and the staff did everything they could to accommodate us. There were bunk beds and I was paired with 5 other people in the room. Food was awesome as well! All of the staff, volunteer coordinators, cooks, taxi drivers, etc. were absolutely amazing and made the experience organized and enjoyable! For the program itself, it seemed slightly unorganized at first because there weren't enough people for certain programs so they were having some people switch programs, but only if they wanted to. With that being said, my program, health care education was amazing. I did find that I was teaching children English and spending time with the kids rather than teaching them specifically about healthcare but I still really enjoyed it! I was able to teach them about washing their hands and how to live healthy! One more thing that people who are travelling with IVHQ should know is that you are required to have a one week orientation. The orientation is fun, you get to learn a lot about the country and culture that you are travelling in. However, it does take some time away from volunteering so make sure to plan for this while planning how long you will stay in your destination. Overall, I LOVED my experience in Bali and would recommend IVHQ to people who are wanting to volunteer abroad.
