Best volunteer program choice that I could have done!

Overall 10

Be a part of UBELONG as a volunteer, brought me back the desire of working and couldn't be more thankful for having experienced what I lived in Laos. From the preparing booklet with the monitors and volunteers reviews until the hard work in the farm I'm grateful for the good work of the organization. This opportunity impacted not only my life but also the ones that I was working and living with. My dreams and objectives are now more alive.
