An eye opening experience
I have been in Rwanda for one month working within the women support staff here and it has been an absolute eye opener and one which has allowed me to experience many new things. From the moment I arrived on camp I was taken away by the beauty of our surroundings- the green forest surrounding the back of the camp and our views out over the green tea farms and the surrounding areas. Stunning.
Living within a local community has also been a real eye opener, seeing their way of life and how they have adapted to live in this small paradise has been amazing- specially the way that they have allowed us to fit into their village and are willing to help us with anything we may need.
I have genuinely enjoyed every aspect of the program I have done here and I am so grateful to Go Volunteer Africa for making this arrangement. The local crew are also extremely fun to work with and the mixture of people on camp means that there is plenty to learn and never a boring moment.
I would recommend Rwanda women empowerment program to anyone, but be prepared for basic living standards! This is genuinely not a problem and I believe it has added to my experience here- but maybe bring a few luxuries from home with you!! Enjoy!
Go Volunteer Africa is a legit volunteer travel company
Go Volunteer Africa is a legit volunteer travel company. I’ve just got back from a project in Uganda- can’t believe how quickly it went, the whole experience was amazing and I’m gutted to be home already. I’m already missing the crew out there loads, everyone got on so well and I’ll definitely be meeting up with some of them for a night out soon. The place itself is like something out of a film- unbelievably beautiful and the weather is bloody amazing- which meant the night parties were very cool!
Even working at the school which I thought would be boring was an unexpectedly mind-blowing experience- the culture is so different from what any of us were used to but the people were legendary- really friendly and so appreciative of our work. Would definitely recommend Go Volunteer Africa and no problems in terms of organization.
Very memorable experience with Go Volunteer Africa in Uganda
Very memorable experience with Go Volunteer Africa in Uganda. As someone who volunteers quite often I must say this organization was by far the most organized and affordable. My favorite experience of the trip was the home stay and the children we taught (I grew a little too attached to some of them!)
Advice for future volunteers would be to pack appropriately (follow the packing list they give you). Not only are they incredibly helpful in your decision making process, always responding to emails within 24 hours, they genuinely take the time to ensure the program is right for you, rather than pushing for the sell. All the pre-booking and booking information is invaluable and gives you a real insight into what to expect from your project. This support is added to by knowledgeable and genuine advisors who have visited the project and have impressive knowledge of what to expect.
The actual projects are well selected to ensure your help is definitely needed and logistics including transport was well thought out. Compared to several other volunteering organizations I have spoken to, GVA stand out a mile for their first class service, ethical prices and outstanding organization skills.
