Fun Meaningful Project with Great Value

I was nervous before going on my solo adventure to the orangutan project in Malaysia. However, as soon as I arrived I felt anxiously excited and yet very peaceful. Everyone involved in the project was so nice and welcoming. They set me up in a great home with great people and I really enjoyed my stay.
The trip was amazing, I definitely want to go back to do another. The project was well organised and I felt safe the whole time. It helped me work on the project and help other people. I had a great time bonding with the orangutan and making a difference in the lives of others.
I can't wait to go on another trip with INVOLVE!
