New Perspective

Projects Abroad was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. Volunteering in the Philippines was with no question the best decision I have made in my life to date. Living with a host family in their cultural with virtually no commonalities to the way I or the majority of people live in America, as well as working with local tradesman was life changing in the best way. Day to day I felt extremely thankful to be given the opportunity to work with these people who are so also so thankful for everything they have, without asking for anything more.
I have been given a new perspective on how I believe life should be experienced and have the Projects Abroad staff, families and volunteers to thank.

How can this program be improved?
Within the country, everything was exactly as I had hoped and more. I don't know exactly how our program fees are distributed between the Projects Abroad administration, staff and local families and workers, but I really just wish a larger portion of volunteer program fees would go to the local workers, host families and country staff.
Yes, I recommend this program
